History and description:
This house was projected by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, and built in 1898. The project was signed by Antoni Maria Gallisā i Soqué, another architect friend of Puig i Cadafalch.
The house was built for the rich owner of a textile business Mr. Joaquim Coll i Regās 
The faįade show stucco geometric ornaments, colorful ceramics, forged iron on windows and a beautiful sculpture "la Filosa" (the spin women) of Eusebi Dalmau over the door.
The interior show a rich decoration based on floral designs, including again the stucco, wood and glasses on windows, doors and a glass roof. The decoration in forged iron show different symbols of textile industry.
The size of the house is not too big (less of 10 meters large) but the interior, carefully designed, appear as a big palace with a magnificent central lounge.
This is the most beautiful Art Nouveau house in Matarķ
The house is at present owned by the "Fundaciķ Caixa Laietana" a regional savings bank who restored it carefully to recover it's original splendor and is used for cultural purposes .
