Petit Futé's opinion on CASA VICENS GAUDÍ

Plate millesim 2022

A work of youth by Gaudí, built between 1883 and 1885 on a commission from Manuel Vicens i Montaner, who wanted to establish his summer residence there. Gaudí was inspired by oriental architecture and the Mudejar style in his design. Its splendid facades combine red brick and polychrome ceramic with oriental motifs. The wrought iron garden gates, designed by Joan Oños, are decorated with palm leaf and Indian carnation motifs. Casa Vicens and its garden have undergone various changes since their creation. Today the house has three different spaces: the original building, designed by Antoni Gaudí, the extension carried out in 1925 by Joan Baptista Serra de Martínez and the garden, replanted during the on-site renovation.

On 4 levels, we discover the meticulously restored interiors, decorated with coffered ceilings, woodwork and paintings, and more particularly the smokers' lounge, on the noble floor, with its polychrome plaster reliefs that clearly show the influence of oriental architecture on Gaudí's first works. On the same floor, the sumptuous dining room preserves its original furniture designed by Gaudí, as well as a collection of 32 paintings by Francesc Torrescassana. The rooms on the first floor, decorated with sgraffitoes with vegetal motifs, open onto the garden planted with palm trees, magnolias and roses. The second floor is dedicated to the permanent exhibition on Casa Vicens, while a roof terrace crowns the whole.

Amazing like all gaudi things
Yes it is wonderful concept to create a country side villa in the center of Barcelona. He thought that People should live outside the cities in the nature with birds, fountains, palms, trees and flowers. You add colours and some Andalusia architectural mparts and that's it

Le bon côté de la première maison de Gaudi; c'est qu'elle est un peu excentrée et encore méconnue du grand public et les prix pratiqués à l'entrée sont raisonnables si l'on compare avec d'autres Maisons du style. L'intérieur est un chef d’œuvre de restauration dont on peut admirer les différentes phases d'évolution tout au long de la visite. ça vaut vraiment le détour!

Ce chef d'oeuvre vient d'être restauré et ouvert au public. La façade de l'immeuble est fascinante, A l'intérieur; le musée est constitué de 2 parties : les pièces telles qu'à l'origine (plafonds travaillés, murs, céramiques), le toit et ses cheminées originales, et la deuxième (partie de la maison transformée par un propriétaire ultérieur) fait place des expositions : présentation d'une maquette de la maison originale et des différents matériaux utilisés pour la décoration, et actuellement une exposition temporaire de maquettes des différents édifices Art Nouveau européens.

Une oeuvre de Gaudi moins connue que les autres car un peu excentré par rapport aux autres édifices de l’architecte. Très bel édifice et l’on reconnaît tout de suite le style de Gaudi. Des travaux sont actuellement en cours afin d’en faire un musée et sera prochainement ouverte au public.
