Casa Batllo is a building located in at Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona and is one of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. Antoni Gaudi took over the construction of the building in 1904 and start directly with the first redesign from the ground up. Casa Batllo has been refurbished several times after that.
They actually named it Casa dels ossos, meaning “House of Bones” due to the visceral, skeletal organic quality that makes it up. Much like everything else that Gaudi has been in charge of designing, this structure is not only a building, house or a museum, it is a true work of modern art.
Walking throughout the house, you will come across the ground floor in which has unusual tracery, very irregular oval windows and sculpted stone work throughout. Again, much like a lot of Gaudi’s other works and buildings, there are barely any straight lines and nothing seems to make sense as far as the lay out or design go; which of course make it all the more unique and intriguing.
