Casa Calvet

48, Carrer de Casp, Barcelona in 1898-1904 by GAUDI i CORNET & BERENGER i MESTRES & RUBIO i BELLVER

It is the most conventional building by Gaudi. It is also the only one that received an architectural price from the town. This building consists in 8 flats and two stores. As for the materials, Gaudi used stone for the front façade and a mix of brick and ceramics for the back one.

Gaudi designed every detail of the building including doors, furniture, ceramic tiles, .... in a very Art Nouveau way. The inside is worth a little visit even if some of its inhabitants are not always welcoming!
