The place
Not far from avenue Louise and Ixelles’s ponds, in the heart of the gallery district, the house, seat of the Foundation, was built in 1924 by the architect Jean Hendricks. It has been completely renovated to welcome its activities by the duo Vanden Eeckhoudt – Creyf architects, in a contemporary style, while retaining its modernist spirit. In addition to the exhibition and work spaces, the venue offers a library, four bedrooms and a large kitchen-dining-terrace area.
