The Vivid and Colorful Restoration of Casa Vicens in Barcelona – Located in Barcelona, the inspiring, iconic and amazing Casa Vicens was built by the renowned Catalan Architect Antoni Gaudí between 1883 and 1885. Quite recently, this architectural gem of Barcelona was restored in the impressive Moorish architectural style and colorful tones.
This UNESCO World Heritage Building was bought by a Spanish Bank and with the assistance of local design studio DAW, the beautiful House was transformed into a museum that opened for the very first in November of last year.
Featuring a typically Catalonian style, Casa Vicens remains a completely freestanding building. This was actually the first house project completed by Gaudí in Barcelona. After that, the acclaimed Catalan architect went to create marvelous masterpieces, such as Casa Batlló, Park Güell and the still yet-to-complete Sagrada Família.
The restoration of this residence is amazing and inspiring. The walls and ceiling of the building were painted with new colors and the gardens and water features have been relocated. Throughout the years, many efforts have conjured in order to restore Gaudí’s original design, including adding spaces in 1925 using original photographs and historical records.
Restorers removed layers of paint in the extraordinary smoking room in order to unveil Gaudí’s original blue and green color scheme. The three-dimensional papier-mâché reliefs on the ceilings and walls have been repaired as well and restored to the original design. In addition, the tiles were laid on the roof, in an effort to be authentic to the old technique of ‘trencadís’, consisting of breaking up ceramic tiles into pieces and putting the fragments up with mortar.
