This unusual Art Nouveau composition bears a remarkable resemblance to the Georges de Saint-Cyr house in Brussels, Belgium.  Gustave Strauven designed that home for the painter in 1899.  He had previously worked in the office of Victor Horta.  Architect Jacques De Weerdt created this home in 1904 for Quinten Metsys.  Some sources claim that its distinctive circular-faced, top-floor loggia is one of five such designs ever built in Belgium, of which only three still exist.  It is one of several Art Nouveau buildings found in the Cogels-Osy Lei area of Antwerp's fascinating Zurenborg District.   Photograph taken in 1982 by Howard J.
