Description  On 18 June 1921 a request was submitted to the Sant Joan Despí municipal authorities for building permission for the house of Pere Xaus, a local contractor. Only part of it was actually built. In 1927 Jujol made a plan to remodel the existing house to what it currently is. Perusal of the archives revealed that the original design was also by Jujol, whereas it had always been assumed that he was only responsible for the conversion. This sheds quite a different light on the plan - the seemingly ad-hoc solutions were actually planned!
