Barcelone, Casa Punxes

Casa de la Punxes (Casa Terrades)

Casa de la Punxes, or Casa Terrades was built in 1905 as one of the most delightful buildings of the modern area of Barcelona. It was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, who was influenced by the Nordic style. Other architects were Alfons Juyol for the sculptures in stone, Eudald Amigó for glasses, Enric Monserda for inside ornamentation and Manuel Ballarin for the forged iron. The façade was made in brick, and the ornaments around the windows and doors in stone. The big panels at the roof level were made in decorated ceramics, showing a sun clock and other national Catalan elements. It was completely renovated at the end of the 1980s.
