    Casa Balto Gaudi

    April 10, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    This Gaudi designed house has to be one of the most amazing things I have seen. Only six photos do not show its genius. Gaudi built the house to be very beautiful and unusual but also functional. There are ventilation shafts and air vents on all windows and doors to allow air flow. A beautiful glass lift is in the centre of the two ventilation shafts that are painted to look like the ocean rippling when you look through the glass panels. I know this because of the very sophisticated audiovisial guide you are given. The roof was amazing with all the Chimneys and ventilation covers turned into works of art. A lovely terrace allowed us to see the curved windows and balconies of the upper rooms.

    There are no straight lines inside to be seen, every door and window frame is curved, there are no corners in rooms just gentle arches and rounded corners. I spent over two hours with my mouth open as each new room revealed something I had never seen before or imagined in a room design. Mind blown!
