The Stoclet House, or Palais Stoclet, is located at the edge of the city at 281 Avenue de Tervueren, Brussels, Belgium. It is two stories with a full basement and finished attic. The structure consists of two principal parts: the large residence and the service wing with garage yard adjoining in the west. "The building is constructed of brick walls with massive ceilings throughout. The facades are clad with slabs of white Norwegian Turili marble. Above a low base and paved gutter the facades are framed by gilded and blackened chased-metal moldings...The tower rises in two stages to a crowning metal dome in the form of a floral group...the central elements of the second stage support four heroic male figures in chased metal by Franz Metzner." -- Sekler, E., Josef Hoffmann: The architectural work, pp. 301-302.
