These days, ‘Terdelt’ has become the name of a neighbourhood. One could be forgiven for forgetting that historically, it was a garden city, its first part built between 1924 and 1926 by Charles Roulet and Henri Jacobs Jnr.
At the Foyer Schaerbeekois housing association’s request, the two architects had a series of so-called ‘modest’ properties built. Very soon, a little over 200 individual houses, all different from each other, were erected and sold at the same time. Most of the houses had a small front garden.
Today, in particular due to the narrow streets and curves preventing heavy car traffic, daily life there remains peaceful — it’s neighbourhood living where the residents know each other and benefit from local facilities, like the sports centre (athletics track, tennis courts, etc.).
The houses have wonderful space, and the outside landscaping makes the neighbourhood attractive, between small squares, playgrounds and tree-lined streets, with beautiful harmony offering open spaces that are ideal for relaxation!
