What would it be like to live in this house, completed over 100 years ago? Take a look:
Josep and Amalia Batllo had wanted a beautiful and innovative home. They bought a 26-year old large house on a prestigious avenue in Barcelona with plans to demolish the building and construct a modern house where they could live with their children. The Batllos hired the renowned Antoni Gaudi. He convinced them to renovate rather than rebuild.
For architecture and art to be considered “great”work, the test of time applies: Is it considered great 50 years later? A hundred years later? Casa Batllo won an architecture prize after the Gaudi renovation and is still considered a great work over one hundred years later.
