Description  When several new streets were being built in Sant Joan Despí a narrow strip of 9 by 28 meter's was cut off Pere Negre's land. Jujol designed two identical houses on it. They had an L-shaped floor plan, the short sides of which are mirror images of each other. The house is at a crossroads, and was intended as a weekend cottage for Jujol himself. It is one of the few buildings which Jujol designed from scratch, and actually completed. The front doors are situated at the 'junction' of the two wings, which also enclose a patio. Above each door there is a protruding corner window on the first floor which opens without a corner jamb. The shared end facade of the two houses has two windows, of which a side has been chamfered for the lower part of the reveal, to afford a better view of the street when one is seated.
