Modernista makeover

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - SPAIN -

At long last, two ar­chi­tec­tural trea­sures in L’Eix­am­ple have opened their doors to vis­i­tors: Casa Amatller (www.amatller .org) and Casa Lleo Mor­era (casalleo­mor­era.com). Casa Amatller, one of Puig i Cadafalch’s most strik­ing bits of Modernista fan­tasy, com­bines Gothic win­dow frames with a stepped gable bor­rowed from Dutch ur­ban ar­chi­tec­ture. Casa Lleo Mor­era is Domenech i Mon­taner’s 1905 con­tri­bu­tion, with Modernista carv­ing out­side and a bright, tiled lobby with flo­ral mo­tifs.
