Casa Thomas

Barcelona, Spain. 1987

  • Description

    Building at 293, Carrer Mallorca, designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner in 1898. This project involved the rehabilitation of a flat in the Eixample neighbourhood of Barcelona. It was home to two generations of the Thomas family, including one of the sons (married to Domènech i Montaner’s daughter) and the second son who had a big family.

    This project adapts the space for use as a home and an architect’s studio.
    The studio is placed near the street façade. The central part contains the kitchen and dining rooms, storage and toilets. On the side overlooking the courtyard at the centre of the block are the sitting room and the family room.
    The work primarily involved restoring the original mahogany and stained glass, as well as the marble patterned floors and mosaic tiling. Finally, to create the comfort conditions required by a present-day dwelling, the Modernista shell was equipped with modern installations.

    Architects: C. Fiol, A. Arriola, X. Arriola
