Casa Amatller

Historical building of interest, Modernisme
Work of the architect Puig i Cadafalch, it was built in 1900. We can highlight the façade, decorated with neogothic and Flemish elements and crowned by a staggered roof. In the vestibule we can see the large number of columns, the bronze lamps, the elegant staircase with its spectacular stained-glass window.

Josep Puig i Cadafalch built

Casa Amatller in 1900 commissioned by Antoni Amatller, the owner of a chocolate factory.

The building is part of the famous "mansana de la discordia" (block of discord), named this because of the visual contrast of the three houses remodelled by the main representatives of the Modernisme movement into one single block of houses on Passeig de Gràcia during the first decade of the 20th century. At Passeig de Gràcia 35 is Casa Lleó Morera (by Domènech i Montaner, 1903), at number 41, Casa Amatller and next door, at number 43, Casa Batlló (by Antoni Gaudí, 1904-1906).

The facade

at Casa Amatller stands out, decorated with neo-Gothic and Flemish ornaments. Accomplished artists and artisans worked on the graffito, ironworks, cabinetwork, ceramics and stone and wood sculptures, all under the orders of Puig i Cadafalch. The facade is finished with a ridged cornice.

In the lobby, where the center del Modernisme office is located, visitors can contemplate the large quantity of columns, bronze lanterns and elegant staircase covered by a spectacular stained-glass skylight.
