Egyptian Ambassador's Residence (fully booked)
This imposing town house was built for a Mr Snauwaert to plans by architect Adrien Blomme (1878-1940), on what was then Avenue des Nations/Natiënlaan. Beaux-Arts in style, it differs from most of the buildings the architect was designing at this time, including his own home, now the Rectorate Building of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), just a stone's throw away on the corner of Avenue Antoine Depage/Antoine Depagelaan and Avenue Franklin Roosevelt/Franklin Rooseveltlaan. The white Euville stone used for framing the windows and the protruding entrance porch, as well as for the cornices and stringcourses, livens up the façades which are entirely made of brick, including the rusticated pilasters. The building now houses the residence of the Egyptian Ambassador to Belgium.
