This is a relatively simple family house, built in 1911 by Puig i Cadafalch in his ‘white period’, when he began to turn away from his historical fantasies towards a more Viennese Secessionist style. The exterior decoration is limited to iron grilles, painted festoons over the windows and a Virgin under the deep eaves. The interior was converted into a doctor’s office in 1940; it used to house a small museum of Catalan sport.
In the same area is Bonaventura Bassegoda’s charming Casa Parets de Plet (1910), at 231 C/ de Muntaner, with its glassy columns on the tribunas and lots of wrought iron.
