History and description:
This house was projected by Josep Puig i Cadafalch and built in 1904-1906.
The Baró de Quadras commissioned Puig i Cadafalch in 1900 to build his new house in Barcelona after to finish his palace in Maçanes.
The building is located in a narrow space between two important streets of Barcelona, due to this reason it has two completely different façades.
The main façade on Diagonal Avenue is a mixture of gothic and "plateresc" styles - following Permanyer - whit, as a result, a very rich decoration.
The interior has some Moslem influence and fortunately, don't needed to be strongly modified to adapt it to the Casa Àsia.
The back façade is more conventional with a decoration remembering the Sezesionstyl.
