Just a few steps away from James Ensor’s House, Theobalds Boothuisje belongs officially to national heritage since 1981. Its name refers to Theobald Vanhille who designed this remarkable building, and to its particular narrow face shaped like an elegant bow, inspired by Art Nouveau.
After a thorough restoration in 2001-2002, this architectural jewel, known as ‘the smallest house of Ostend’, became Galerie Theobalds Boothuisje.
Irène Philips, painter and sculptress, established her studio in Theobalds Boothuisje and she is currently managing here the projects of MedusaArts. Aerens-Philips Foundation. With its poetic vocation this ‘boat house’ is a haven for different practices of art.
