The place
Not far from avenue Louise and Ixelles’s ponds, in the heart of the gallery district, the Foundation house, was built in 1924 by the architect Jean Hendricks. It has been completely
renovated to accommodate its activities by the architecture duo Vanden Eeckhoudt- Creyf, 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.
