The Amazing Casa Sayrach

The Amazing Casa Sayrach

The Sayrach house, with a clearly modernist architectural style, is located at the intersection between Avenida Diagonal and Enrique Granados. It was built in 1918 by Gabriel Borrell, although the design must be attributed to the architect Manuel Sayrach. It should be noted that this building has a clear influence of one of the greatest geniuses of modernism, the master Gaudí.

One of the main characteristics of the building from the exterior is the tower, finished with a pinnacle and the great facade, following the aesthetics of the curves, the floral ornamentation and the regal materials of stone and iron, so characteristic in this architectural style. As for the interior, the main lobby and elevator follow the same modernist style, drawing peculiar and Gaudinian forms. This space is not open to the public every day, therefore visitors are urged to be informed of the opening days prior to visiting.
