Prague House – Delegation of Prague to the European Union
Dating from 1897, this imposing, neoclassical-inspired building, co-designed by architects Constant Bosmans and Henri Vandeveld, is currently home to the Delegation of Prague to the European Union. Its white-stone façade rests on a base of blue limestone with smooth-faced rustication. The main entrance, complete with canopy, leads into a vestibule that has retained its original decoration comprising painted garlands of foliage imitating mosaic. Visitors will be able to marvel at the ground-floor drawing room, whose elaborate decorative scheme includes grisaille paintings of putti representing the four seasons. This room will also house an exhibition organised as part of Brussels Design September.
