The Villa Empain is an Art Deco style residence built by Michel Polak between 1930 and 1935 on behalf of Baron Louis Empain. The facades are clad with polished Baveno granite from Italy, and some brass sections are covered with gold leaf.
Escalette and Bois-Jourdan marble were used for the interior. Tropical woods were applied in floors and panelling. Complex glass mosaics and a backlit glass ceiling complete the interior.
