Gaudi's Casa Batllo (11 photos)
Camera: K5 Photo Location: Barcelona 
Posted By: sealonsf, 11-14-2013, 11:29 AM

Just a few from Guadi's Casa Batllo in Barcelona. I think you either love or hate Gaudi's work and I love it. I was so impressed with Casa Batlllo that I dreamed that I was sleeping there that night. I hope you enjoy the photos. (Stay tuned for photos from the roof -- coming soon.)

1. The living room.

2. Gazing at the central part of the house. There's a skylight at the top of the building with windows facing it all around the house to let in natural light.

3. The details were amazing.

4. Above the window.


6. Stairway.


8. Floor tiles.

9. Light plays a big part in his designs.

10. The blue on the central walls get darker and the windows get smaller as you move up to the higher floors.

11. Even the attic is beautiful with natural light.

Count me among the crowd that think's Gaudi's great. I guess that Art Appreciation class I took in college does come in handy once in a while.

I love natural light. I always get top-floor apartments so I can leave the blinds open all the time. You did a good job capturing the light and atmosphere of this place. Thanks for showing us!

Thanks for the comments! It was really something to see - not cheap (20.35€ - almost $30) but worth it. His buildings feel so organic, you halfway think they're breathing.

Amazing architecture and photographs of it. Thank you. I've never seen these views/details, and I have loved Gaudi a long time (and am an architect). I need to visit Barcelona, it has been on the list for a while.
