Building, 7 Grand-Place

The main distinguishing feature of this building is its proportions, albeit very narrow, that enable it to dominate the plot where it is located. There is an 18th century façade built entirely from limestone, extending up all four levels, whose heights decrease progressively. While the ground floor has been converted into a retail space, the upper floors have retained the three contiguous windows that occupy virtually the entire width of the frontage, leaving only the room required for the mouldings - including one triglyph - that frame the windows and delineate the levels horizontally. A jutting ledge separates the top floor from the mansarded roof, which is surprisingly high. A good-sized dormer window and triangular pediment occupy the centre on each of the façades. At the rear, the building combines brick and limestone. Two small houses, no doubt from the 19th century, used to occupy the back of the plot.

Building listed on 31st August 1984
