Extras

One-of-a kind for over one hundred years: Constructed between 1900 and 1905, Casa Burés takes its name from its first owner, Francesc Burés, owner of one of Spain's most successful textile companies. Originally, the ground floor housed the company's headquarters while the 1000m² first floor was Burés' family home. The upper floors – which were accessed by one of the first lifts to be installed in Barcelona – then comprised twelve 300m² rental apartments. The building's façade at the junction of Carrer Ausiàs March and Carrer Girona is just as imposing today as when it was first built. It is inside, however, where Casa Burés' greatest treasures are to be found.

Modernist values: The renovation of Casa Burés not only preserves the building's structure and its listed decorative elements, but also maintains all the advantages of its Modernist architecture: light, space, habitability, high-quality materials and maximum comfort.

Preservation of the past: Every door, window, ceiling, floor, sculpture and pane of stained glass has been painstakingly studied by experts in Catalonia's Modernist heritage. The most valuable elements were restored by specialist craftsmen, while others were replaced by identical pieces adapted to suit today's purposes or given a new lease of life as decorative features. For example, sliding doors that previously divided rooms now partition the separate areas for daytime and night-time activities. And the exquisite wallpaper patterns that once adorned the walls of the bedrooms inspired the design of the new ground-glass screens that have taken their place.

Nothing has been forgotten.
