Paviments Escofet

Josep Pascó i Mensa
Sant Feliu de Llobregat (1855) - Barcelona (1910)

The Escofet Mosaics House, specialized in hydraulic pavements, was located in origin, in 1890, at the Ronda de Sant Pere, no.8. Subsequently, all the decoration, both interior and exterior, was transferred to its current location. This decree was made by Josep Pascó (1856-1920), decorator, lecturer at La Llotja and mosaic designer.
The lining is made of artificial stone panels, decorated with floral motifs and wooden frames as well. The modernist motifs are concentrated in the signboard and the upper grates, however, in the rest, a drawing of pavement that the same decorator had been repeated.

The Barcelona Modernisme Route is an itinerary that takes you through the Barcelona of Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch, the architects who, together with others, made Barcelona the world capital of Modernisme. This Route enables you to get to know thoroughly impressive palatial residences, amazing houses, the temple that has become a symbol of the city and a huge hospital, but it also includes humbler and more everyday buildings and items such as chemists’, shops, lampposts and benches - modernist works which show that Art Nouveau put down strong roots in Barcelona and today Modernisme is still an art that is alive and part of life in the city.

The Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route can be acquired in our centers of Modernisme.
