Fodor's Review

This elaborately worked metal exoskeleton, the first in Nancy (1901), exudes functional beauty. The floral decoration is reminiscent of the building's past as a seed supply store. Windows were worked by Jacques Gruber; the building was designed by Henry-Barthélemy Gutton, while Victor Schertzer conceived the metal frame.
