ART NOUVEAU ARCHITECTURE
The Padró-Riera building was constructed during the early 20th Century (1914-1918) by the architect Bernat Pejoan i Sanmartí in the distinctive Catalan Art Nouveau style.
It is a chamfered-corner apartment building made up of a ground floor, two stories and a basement. Its composition is symmetric with a ground floor facade that is characterised by beautiful openings framed by ornate stone pillars with flower motifs.
The upper floor boasts beautiful rounded verandas that hug the house’s corners.
Elaborate decorations worked in stone and iron, characteristic of Catalan Art Nouveau, are a feature of the verandas and balconies.
