CР°sa Vicens is one of the first important works of GaudГ in Barcelona. The house was commissioned by an owner of ceramics factory and completed in 1878-1885. Located on the small lot of land in GrГ cia, with palm trees planted all around, the house finds a lot of inspiration in this tropical tree: vertical tribunes, ceramic tiles of the facade and forged grills on the first floor all remind of palm trees one way or the other. Casa Vicens, despite being an early work, already hints to GaudГвЂ™s future commitment to the fluidity of line, love of optic illusions and colourful tiles.
Casa Vicens is currently for sale, however, its undoubtedly exorbitant price remains a secret.
