Atelier Decor

THE ABANDONED ATELIER IN BELGIUM


‘Atelier Decor’ is an old abandoned villa and workshop in the small village Hulshout, in the Antwerpen region of Belgium. It was owned by the artist Victor Janssens. He made sculptures and furniture for gardens and parks.

The model of this house was designed and built for the Exposition Universelle et Internationale. The 1910 World Fair in Brussels. In 1912, Janssens rebuilt the same house in his hometown Hulshout, stone by stone, following the original design until the smallest detail.

At the time of my visit the workplace was still full with sculptures, moulds and paint. The villa was the home of the owner, there is also a small showroom attached where the costumers could place an order. The villa was sold in 2012 and the meanwhile collapsed workshop was demolished in 2013. I visited ‘Atelier Decor’ in 2008.
