Hôtel Tassel 1893. Baron Victor Horta was a Belgian architect and designer. Commissioned to design a home for professor Emile Tassel, he transfused the recent art nouveau influences into a groundbreaking design withsemi open-plan floor layout & incorporated interior iron structure with curvilinear botanical forms. Ornate and elaborate designs and natural lighting were concealed behind a stone façade. The building has been recognized as the 1st appearance of Art Nouveau in architecture.
Horta's home - Once more we see Horta's use of natural curving lines. Gold and earthy tones are prominent in his designs, as well as glass ceilings to let in natural light. I love the wooden chevron floor boards which bring in more natural elements
