Industrialist Josep Batlló hired Gaudí in 1907 to give his plain building a facelift.
He ended up with a fantastic yet functional abode.
I’ll let the images do most of the talking.
Gaudí designed a new undulating façade of glass, stone and mosaics, complete with curvy windows and wavy balconies.
Like the facade, the interior is finished without a straight line in sight. Every piece of wood, iron and glass was exactly shaped to fit into its thought-out place.
The roof is an interpretation of St. George and the dragon.
