Casa Comalat, Barcelona, Spain

Salvador Valeri i Pupurull
Date Built
1909 - 1911
Avinguda Diagonal & Carrer Corsega 316
This magnificent modernista building was commissioned by a Barcelona money-lender Sr. Comalat.  Unusually, it has two completely different facades, one facing Avinguda Diagonal (see above) and the other on Carrer Corsega (see below).

On the Diagonal side, the building is topped by a turret in the shape of a harlequin's hat clad in green glazed tiles.

The stone facade features sculpted garlands and figures as well as numerous balconies. 

At street level the window frames are Gaudiesque.

The facade on Carrer Corsega is much more colourful with irregular wooden galleries, elaborate mosaic designs and more Gaudiesque window frames.
