What is striking: the generous passage, the beautifully decorated salons on the ground floor, the rich ornaments, ... What is amazing: the original circulation. The stairs - wide and narrow, curved and straight, light and dark, magnificent and sober - are a translation of the double life that was once lived in the house. The visible and present chic next to the invisible support in the form of maids who moved silently through the house .... The traversability feels good, it offers endless movement through the house.
