Hotel Solvay,Unesco World Heritage – Horta Inside-Out 2018
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!
