The home and atelier of Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta is a thing of beauty – it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site along with three other of his masterpieces. Baron Horta designed his house right down to the taps and door handles, all of which remain in place. Furniture and decorative items designed by him and his contemporaries fill the light and airy rooms and a magnificent, organic staircase leads up to a stained glass atrium at the top. There is a downside. You’ll need to deal with needlessly officious staff, leave your bags with them and make sure you don’t take photographs. However, life beyond reception comes with greater reward, so bear with and step into a different world.
