Casa Vicens by Gaudí re-opened to the public only two years ago, after a four-year renovation returning it to its original state. The house is of great architectural value since it is the first important commission Antoni Gaudí received as a young architect. Designed as a summer house for the Vicens family in 1883, it is also one of the first buildings kicking off the Catalan Modernism movement. The house has never been open to the general public, so visiting this masterpiece felt extra special.
A new staircase was added to adapt the home to its new museum and cultural site use, replacing the non-original staircase during previous renovations. We are amazed by the stunning architectural lines in this staircase, work of Elías Torres, José Antonio Martínez Lapeña, and David Garcia.
