From Place Flagey/ Flageyplein to Rue de la Brasserie/ Brouwerijstraat: a rainbow of materials
While Place Flagey/Flageyplein is known for its characteristic yellow bricks, the surrounding urban landscape is home to a wide range of materials in a whole rainbow of different colours! Blue limestone, white stone, red bricks, woodwork, stained glass and sgraffito are just some examples of the wealth, in terms of both materials and craftsmanship, of the different architectural styles that have arisen over the years. The buildings you will see stand testament to not only the craftspeople’s timeless skills but also the high quality of the contrasting facings used to decorate the buildings. Take a moment to explore this highly colourful neighbourhood, where several of the residences were designed by prominent architects.
