Number 24 was created by Frédéric Giniez. He was the architect of nine other buildings in this street. Note the quality and care taken in the decoration and the choice of materials. For this building, the front door is particularly noteworthy for its decorations. The door is placed in an arcade recess with a semicircular entablature. The stone tympanum is decorated with two seated cherubs. The sculptures of cherubs, griffins or even faces are very common in Lyon private architecture. It is a real local particularism which attracted several sculptors to move to Lyon.
