At first glance, the elegant facade built stands out. with stone ashlars and with alabaster and marble balustrades, which give the building an additional artistic value of incalculable value, both exterior and interior, since the best artists of the moment collaborated in its construction and ornamentation, the same ones who worked for Lluís Domènech i Muntaner, father of Pere Domènech i Roura.

From the main door on the ground floor there is access to an elegant lobby, an operational wooden elevator, an oratory / chapel, an office, and a unique central staircase, similar to the current one in the “Parlament de Catalunya” where Pere Domènech left his signature. in bronze. In the oratory of the house, the alabaster altarpiece with an oil painting by Labarta (Palau Nacional, Hospital de Sant Pau) stands out; works by Josep Dunyach (Palau Nacional, Plaza Catalunya) and Cuyás decorate the hall of lost steps and others by Federico Marés (Monastery of Poblet, Sta María del Mar) decorate the hall of the house, in addition, in the office, it stands out a bronze by Georges Bareau (facade of the Grand Palais in Paris and museum in Copenhagen).

A beautiful carved glass and wood elevator by ERSCE, which worked for Gaudí, is in operation and preserves the same systems and mechanisms of the time.

The building stands out for its beauty in the mural decorations of Vilaró i Valls (LLeó Morera) and Pey (Parliament of Catalonia and Barcelona City Council), many of stucco ironed on fire and others painted in tempera; the crystals, by Granell y Cía (Palau de la Música, Hospital de Sant Pau), and very varied techniques: leaded, carved, painted, bent or acid-etched; the marble floors are artistically placed by architect's design and often inlaid in brass.
