The metamorphosis of a building

GaudÝ's 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.
