How to preserve the architectural heritage of a house?

The brochure 'Your house has style!' gives tips on how to preserve architectural heritage and upgrade your house in Brussels. It is only available in French and Dutch.

The appearance of a street is largely determined by the quality of the facades. The City of Brussels has a rich history, with buildings in many different styles. You will find advice on heritage from the City of Brussels in this brochure.

Preserving heritage

The aim is to combine both conservation, sustainable development and indoor comfort. The tips encourage the maintenance of what exists to preserve cohesion in public spaces and they apply to all buildings on the territory of the City of Brussels, in all styles.

You may also be eligible for grants for your works. Find out where you can get information or support:
