This building was built between 1902 and 1905 to the designs of Victor Horta for the lawyer Max Hallet, and it marks the beginning of Horta's transition to a more sober style of Art Nouveau. The interior is magical with curves and counter-curves reflecting each other harmoniously in splendid stained-glass windows. The huge staircase is at the heart of the house, and is made up of two flights of white marble stairs, bathed in daylight from the verandah on the first landing and from a huge skylight above the second landing.
