This late Modernista property combines greens and pinks with a large amount of decorative reliefs. The floral reliefs of the windows and railings stand out.

  • Cultural heritage

This is a detached house built approximately between 1925 and 1927. It was designed by the architect Guillem Busquets. The building presents a style approaching late Catalan Art Nouveau. The treatment of its walls stands out: masonry on the ground floor and the second floor, and smooth stucco on the first floor. Generally, the decoration of the building exploits the qualities of brickwork framing on windows and doors. The angle formed by the northern side is a rounded corner, and a balcony on the first floor; its brickwork base sits on several rounded arches, which stand on brick corbels. Following the trend initiated with pre-modernism, brickwork reaches the category of ‘noble material’ in this building. Wrought iron appears in balcony rails and in the window grilles on the ground floor in the shape of geometrical and floral decorations. Today, it hosts the headquarters of Col·legi de Censors Jurats de Comptes de Catalunya.
