It is a classic example of the Art Nouveau style, with elaborate mythical, mystic ornamental masks and plant motives and steel finishings.
The structure was built in 1902 by Hans Lande as an apartment building, which it remains till the present day.
Of course the centerpiece of the ornamental facade is a huge romantic mask of a Faun – a greeko-roman mythical creature roaming the woods of Europe.
Another feature characteristic to the style of La Belle Epoque is hte door, with mystical scenes above it and massive tree-like columns on the sides
