History and description

This house was projected by Josep Puig i Cadafalch and built in 1911.
Following the classification of Alexandre Cirici Pellicer this house don’t correspond to Rose period -Modernist (Art Nouveau) period- of architect, but to White period closer to Austrian Sezessionstyl.
For that reason, the façade is not covered with the profuse decoration of Puig i Cadafalch Rose period buildings.
