Description  Across the road from Torre de la Creu, where his wife-to-be often spent her holidays, Jujol designed a small home for himself two years before he got married. In the end, it was never realized. The garden was situated at a lower level and meant that the bay window at the living level stood out from the level of the terrain. The slope of the land meant that the cellar only had to be dug out at the street side. The huge space which opened onto the garden, by way of the bay window and the doors, and dropped down at the front door, was possibly intended as an office or sitting-room. The floor plan was wedge-shaped because the street crossed a canal here. It is remarkable that Jujol planned a blank wall towards the canal and that the bedrooms were ventilated by way of a light court on the north side. He opted for coolness and a view, rather than sunlight. Today there is a garage on the site.
