Description  Jujol only realized a few designs in the center of Barcelona. Some were revolutionary, like Casa Planells; others, like this corner treatment of a two-story block, with apartments above and shops and garages below, were more or less routine jobs. And this design is far from exciting, architecturally. If finances sufficed, he did sometimes go to town, within the bounds of the project, but when funds were scarce, Jujol was more modest in his approach. But, generally speaking, he always tried to adapt to the surroundings.
