Maison Biet

22, rue de la commanderie, Nancy in 1901-02 by BIET & VALLIN & GRUBER Listed monument since 1975

The plan of this building is really interesting. It uses a typical scheme largly used by other architects of the Ecole de Nancy : flat roofs that are used as terraces. In this building, the various flat roof of building parts play like a terraced pyramide each terrace roof being the terrace of the previous building part.

The decoration is based on nature. The iron gate is especially fantastic
