Thursday Doors – Casa Batlló, Barcelona

Casa Batllo Door 01

Casa Batlló is a unique and fabulous building that defies any sort of description and is a building that has to be seen to be fully appreciated. From the road outside the building looks stunning and the local name for the building is Casa dels ossos, literally the House of bones and the building has a visceral, skeletal organic quality. Much of the façade is decorated with a mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles that begins in shades of golden orange and moves and merges harmoniously into greenish blues.

  4. These are both museum-quality specimens. For a hobbyist woodworker like myself the craftsmanship is truly inspiring.
