The apartment is situated in a residential building of modernist style built around 1904 by the architect Maurici Augé Robert who was also author to other elegant buildings and houses of similar style built in the Eixample district of Barcelona and one of the candidates for the construction of the Columbus monument for the preparation of the Expo 1888. The building is characterized by a rich stone ornamentation such as the Salomonic columns and the busts carved into the lintels, specially the one dominating the front door.
The apartment itself is as unique as the building. The owner of the apartment has taken care of the decoration himself, as owner of a high end furniture and decoration business that also through the close relationship between his family and Salvador Dalí, has collaborated in the furnishing of well known buildings such as the Teatre-Museu Dalí in Figueres, the Casa-Museu Salvador Dalí in Portlligat and the Casa-Museu Castell Gala Dalí in Púbol.
Our guests in this apartment enjoy a spacious living room with a white sofa, 2 classy arm chairs and a glass dining table with 6 chairs, a 55” smart TV and DVD player.
