  • This is a strange building in that, like Casa Comalat in the same street, has two totally different styled facades. The one on the Diagonal avenue is in Gothic style with turrets and long windows and balconies. The other one, facing Rosselló street is reminiscent of the art nouveau style that was so popular in Barcelona at the beginnings of the 20th century.
  • When viewed from the Avinguda Diagonal, the building is reminiscent of North-European palaces, with an intricately carved neo-plateresque style which highlights the noble character of the building. Here, the long, ornate balcony, with its busts of eminent medieval and Renaissance figures, floral motifs and heraldic shields, and the mansards on the upper floor, are fully in keeping with the medieval European style.
