Hotel Solvay - Hani Kanaftchian

By choosing Victor Horta and his specific design approach, Armand Solvay expresses his own progressive attitude.

Two skylight domes, each above a light and ventilation shaft, are visible from the other side of the street. As essential constructive elements they enable Horta to design a revolutionary interior.

To implement his concept of a Gesamtkunstwerk, Horta turns to his friends of the Belgian art world. Luckily, this outstanding building could be preserved even in times when Art Nouveau was less appreciated. A masterpiece!
