Casa Fuster Hotel, 132, Gràcia Promenade, Barcelona. Spain.

Activities, Construction, Rehabilitation

Casa Fuster Hotel is a Catalan modernist building in Barcelona designed and built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner between 1908 and 1910. It is located on Gràcia Promenade next to Diagonal Avenue. It was converted into a luxury hotel in 2004.

In this house Domènech i Muntaner used many of his characteristic elements as an architect: a base made of robust columns in red stone, trilobular windows and floral ornamentation. The whole denotes a great expressive restraint, favoured by the marble and eurhythmy of the two main outer walls arranged around a strip gallery which from the first floor upwards is turned like a tower up to the crown of the building; the back is unusually flat.

The work to be done consists of the refurbishment and repair of the outer walls and exterior wooden doors and windows.
