Huart Hamoir: around a park avenue


16/09/2017 - 16/09/2017

Designed in 1907 and constructed on the side of the hill of the former hamlet of Helmet, the neighbourhood around Avenue Huart Hamoir is characterised by its mirrored landscape layout, its Eclectic architecture in its western part and its mainly Art Deco-inspired buildings in its eastern half. The central axis was designed as a veritable small park which still retains a number of faux rock features, monuments and several remarkable trees. The architectural diversity of the neighbourhood also serves as an infinite source of minor heritage that alludes to nature through stained glass fanlights or numerous sgraffitos still present on the façades of Belle Époque period buildings. Through the inhabitants and successive builders of the quarter, the major and minor history of the municipality will be brought to life.
