Villa Dirickz
A Modern Day Castle

Brussels, Belguim

The Villa Dirickz is located in Sint-Genesius-Rode, a city on the periphery of Brussels, Belgium.
The Villa was built by famous Belgian Architect Marcel Leborgne, a pioneer of contemporary architecture and one of the founders of Modernism in Belgium.  Marcel Leborgne designed this four-story villa for Mr. Dirickz, the director of the Forges de Clabecq, an iron and steel factory, who loved art, theater and a glittering lifestyle. The construction started in 1929 and the building was completed in 1933.  The Villa, after a period when it felt into a state of severe disrepair, was bought in 2007 by developer Alexander Cambron.
