Unique in #Liège and even in across the entire landscape of Belgian architecture, the house-sculpture made by the architect Jacques Gillet in 1967 is experiencing a revival. A new owner has committed to restoring it to its former glory. To mark this renewal, an exhibition of contemporary art is being held on site.
Located at the end of a wooded plot on the heights of Angleur, this unusual building hosts the exhibition "Hors les murs" of the Quai4 galerie. Creations by ten artists adorn the work of the Liège architect Jacques Gillet. A beautiful way to celebrate the new life of the place which after a few years of uncertainty to find a new owner.
Far from being an architectural fad, this habitable sculpture was built in 1967 for the family of Ivan Gillet, the brother of the architect. Two adults with four children lived there for several years. Associated functional, artistic and sustainable aspects are possible thanks to this new partnership. Jacques Gillet has teamed up with René Greisch as an engineering consultant and the sculptor Félix Roulin.
This exceptional heritage site remains accessible to the public on Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons as part of the exhibition "Hors les Murs" until 31 October 2019.
