Shopping in Transparency : the stores for Wolfers and Waucquez- Horta Inside-Out 2018

Victor Horta designs the store for textile dealer Waucquez as a promotion and distribution space.

The roof, almost entirely made of glass, and the central light shaft spread the daylight through the entire building, thus emphasizing the texture and colour of the fabrics.

Not far from Waucquez, Horta designs a jewelry store for the Wolfers family, including studios and office spaces.

The Temple of the Human Passions and the Wolfers Interior- Horta Inside-Out 2018

The exhibition halls of the Cinquantenaire palace are opened in 1880 to promote Belgian arts and crafts.

Close to the large building, avant-garde architects design smaller pavilions – among them the Temple of the Human Passions.

The small building, singular in its kind, can be read as the ‘built story’ of how Victor Horta hid Jef Lambeaux’s relief of the human passions from indiscrete eyes.

We also visit the shop interior that Horta designed for goldsmith and jeweller Wolfers.

Meeting point: The Cinquantenaire Museum, Park du Cinquantenaire 10, 1000 Brussels, at the main entrance.

Victor Horta’s kindergarten and the lost Maison du Peuple (House of the People)- Horta Inside-Out 2018

The kindergarten for about 200 children is completed in the Marollen neighbourhood in 1900.

The rooms are organized around a central playground, covered by a vaulted roof of glass and metal.

According to Fröbel’s pedagogy the playground is crucial for the development of the child.

In the same neighbourhood and period, Horta designs an Art Nouveau palace for the working man, with plenty of light, air and luxury. Unfortunately, and against huge protest, the Maison du Peuple is sloped in 1965/66.

The opulent interior, bathed in light, offers views of the Squares and the ponds.

The layout of the landscape park is reflected in Horta’s unusual design of the house.

House Autrique – Horta Inside-Out 2018

Victor Horta finds his first clients and faithful friends within the context of the Freemasons. Eugène Autrique, being one of them, asks for a simple house without any specific luxury.

On his quest to leave the period’s eclecticism behind, Horta begins by integrating as many big windows in the facade as possible, and by reconsidering the structure of the various spaces.

A starting point!
