The original Aubette, a neo-classical construction situated at Place Kléber and designed by the architect Jean François Blondel between 1764 and 1767, became, at the instigation of Paul and André Horn, architect and pharmacist from Mulhouse, a vast leisure complex of around 200m2 in 1928. The décors of diverse spaces - a café, restaurant, brasserie, tea room, cinema/ballroom, cellar-dancehall, Salle des Fêtes (festivity hall) and others - are spread across four levels (cellar, ground floor, entresol and floor level). Their creation was entrusted to Arp and Sophie Taeuber-Arp who joined forces with their friend, the painter and architect, Theo van Doesburg. Most of the drawings were completed in
early 1927. It then took one year to build and officially inaugurate the building on February 17, 1928. The Aubette was conceived to be a work of total art applying the esthetic theories of «De Stijl», the movement founded by Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondrian in 1917.
