Residence of the Swiss Ambassador to Belgium and NATO (fully booked)
Built to plans drawn up in 1911 by Armand Delalieux, the architect of various Art Deco buildings in Brussels, this attractive double-fronted mansion replaced two semi-detached houses dating from the last quarter of the 18th century. In this instance, a neoclassical style was chosen to match the surrounding buildings around Parc de Bruxelles/Warandepark. Completed in 1912, the building was made available to Belgian Minister for Foreign Affairs Paul Hymans, before being bought by the Swiss Confederation in 1971. It now houses the Residence of the Ambassador of Switzerland to Belgium and to NATO. Refurbishment work carried out in 2020-2021 included improvements to energy efficiency and insulation.
