Casa Sayrach

Manuel Sayrach i Carreras
Barcelona (1886) - Sant Feliu del Llobregat (1937)

One of the most outstanding examples of late Barcelona Modernisme. Built in 1918, the house is unique because of the curved forms of the façade, in which the influence of Gaudí may clearly be seen, and because of the slender tower at the corner. The entrance hall is an apotheosis of the most Baroque Modernisme. This work is now attributed to the architect and writer Manuel Sayrach i Carreras, even if the project was signed by Gabriel Borrell.
