Our offices are located close to the iconic art deco Flagey building, just off the historic landmarks of the Abbaye de la Cambre and ’les Etangs d’Ixelles’ (the famous ponds).
The building, a private villa built in 1850 by architect Ernest Delune, highly influenced by the Flemish neo-renaissance, and in a later stage by art nouveau, used to be surrounded by a 1,5 acre park until 1918. The park became the property of the STIB, the Brussels transport company, who parks the trams there at night. The building played an important role during WW II for its support to the resistance by hiding the transistors in the cellar at night. The house welcomed (and still welcomes) famous guests (King Juan Carlos & Queen Sophia), heads of governments, artists, business leaders, politicians and philosophers, and is still being used for several artistic, cultural, business and political occasions and connecting moments, as well for photo and film shootings.
The renovations we decided to conduct progressively started in April 2008 and will (hopefully) end in December 2018.
