This magnificent house at the Vergotesquare in Schaarbeek was designed by Albert Nyst.
Nyst, coming from Liège, designed a lot of buildings in Brussels. He started his career as an engineer and was originally involved in industrial projects. In the beginning of his career as an architect he designed in a classical monumental style. But after World War I his work changed radically.
The Fournier House was protected in 1993.
