de Gràcia, 43
metamorphosis of a building
genius transformed a terraced house, characteristic of the
district of the Eixample of the 19th century, into one of
the most outstanding buildings in Barcelona's architecture:
Batllˇ House. GaudÝ undertook a global reform. To the fašade
he added a gallery, new balconies and polychorme ceramics.
Inside he reorganised the spaces and unified the courtyards
and the existing staircase in order to achieve more light
and ventilation. He completed this intervention with the addition
of two floors finished with a spectacular ceramic crowing.
