Art Nouveau


At the beginning of the 20th century a new residential district originated, which was mainly populated by the middle classes that arose from the soaring development of the steel, glass and coal industries. These middle classes wanted to live in comfort and display their newly acquired status by building sumptuous mansions to mark their recent success. Consequently, Art Nouveau found a fertile ground for its development and left traces in the architectural environment of the city.
