The House

“To experience the emotion of art with passion,
sensitivity, and beauty.”

A unique venue for an artistic project on a human scale.


Maison Particuliere was set in an elegant Belgian townhouse at rue du Châtelain in Brussels. Eclectic in style, it was built around 1880 by architect Jean Léon Janlet, who subsequently expanded it in 1909.

 

In 2011 Maison Particulière, a nonprofit organization, settled on this address and had only one objective for the six following years: sharing art, with works to be discovered or rediscovered, inside a private home.

Temporary exhibits were organized together with artcollectors who chose themselves the artworks they lent us.

 

In 2010, the building was entirely renovated for the art center. Natural light bathes the interior. Graced with a small, curving garden in layers of green and white designed by Jean Philippe Miest, the house was a gem of a showcase for art collections.

 

"We wanted the house to be warm and convivial to welcome our guests and members in a calm and serene environment."
