Barcelona | Casa Battlò
A fantastically whimsical house designed by Antoni Gaudi, Casa Batllò delights with shapes and textures inspired from nature. Fish scale shingles form the roof and ceramic tree tops the chimneys. Doors are shaped like mushrooms and windows like clouds. Waves crash on ceilings and a snail shell coils into a banister. Colorful tiles and vivid mosaics captivate at every turn. Stained glass takes on forms and colors like you've never seen it. Hardwood floors and furnishings tie everything together with a polished finesse. It's an intricately imaginative space, a work of thought provoking architecture both inside and out.
