Zooming in House Batllo
This house is the story of a reconstruction. When asked by the owner to design a new house, Guadi opted for a renovation. He added his unique style which can be appreciated in its facade and in its floors. The facade is curved once and again, as Gaudi seemed to have avoided every straight line. The surface is rough as it is covered by pieces of tiles which were placed to create movement as colors turn from orange to blue. The upper part of the facade features a series of strangely designed balconies that give an out of the world feeling to the whole building. The roof is also curved and has the texture of the skin of a dinosaur.
The interior not only features unique floors but also a kind of psychedelic staircase and a strange fireplace. Gaudi also designed some of the furniture including the lamps. This travel souvenir is surely to bring a pristine memory of your visit to Barcelona.
