Built in 1928, the house of banker and arts patron David van Buuren has an exterior typical of the Amsterdam School.
The interior, a tour de force of Art Deco, represents a unique ensemble brought together by renowned decorators from Belgium, France and the Netherlands. The rare furniture, carpets, stained glass, sculpture and paintings by Belgian and international masters from the 16th to the 20th century have remained in their original places, giving this museum the intimate character of a private home.
The gardens are a masterpiece of landscaping in themselves. At the end of the 1920s, Jules Buyssens conceived the Regular Garden, the Picturesque Garden and the Large Rose Garden in the spirit of Art Deco.
In the 1960s, René Pechère created the Labyrinth and the Heart Garden. Thanks to Alice van Buuren, this park is a splendid a place to stroll, reflect and dream.
