Central and sunny apartment in the “Eixample Dret”
Located on Girona Street, the apartment is located on the first floor (second real floor) with views to the “Concepción” market. It opens to the Passage of the Market, a pedestrian street with lots of light
The building was built in 1900, in the midst of the modernist era and belongs to the protected environment of conservation of the "Eixample"
Each of the plants that make up the property gives rise to two apartments, one directed to the Market Passage and the other to Girona Street. The apartment has windows along the facade forming a gallery directed to the southwest. The interior areas also have light inputs through two interior patios located on the sides of the apartment. As it usually happens in these buildings of the protected environment, it is in the courtyards where the building’s downspouts are concentrated.
The living room and the main room open to the principal facade. The rhythm of this façade, facing the Passage, is marked by a series of galleries with the same characteristics.
On the other hand, the heights of all the rooms are generous as is customary in the buildings of the "golden square"
The entrance hall of the building is characterized by the marble finishes of the walls and the pavement, which lead to a large staircase. The whole set of common areas ends up giving this property the representative characteristics of the "Eixample" of Barcelona

About Eixample

In 1859 a competition was announced; the city wall was to be torn down and Barcelona was to expand, but to do this a design plan was required. The winning plan was drawn by architect Ildefons Cerdà, and he was given the honour of creating the modern Barcelona, with construction beginning in the 1860s.

Today, the district of L’Eixample fills the gap between Ciutat Vella and the former small towns outside Barcelona. The area is organised based on a grid plan, with properties built in squares, often with inner courtyards in the middle. L’Eixample is best known for its art nouveau architecture, and many of Gaudí’s most magnificent masterpieces can be found here, including Sagrada Família, La Pedrera (Casa Milà) and Casa Batlló.

L’Eixample is a large area stretching from Plaça de Catalunya to Diagonal, and is split into ‘L’Eixample Esquerra’ (left) and ‘L’Eixample Dreta’ (right), divided by Passeig de Gràcia. Quadrat d’Or, the golden square in Catalan, is an area around Passeig de Gràcia and featuring the largest collection in the world (comprising 150 in total) of protected buildings designed in the art nouveau style.

There is also a plentiful array of some of the best bars and restaurants in the city, not to mention a café culture that has blossomed with streets full of terraces and cafés. Barcelona’s main boulevard, Passeig de Gràcia, and the streets leading off it are home to first-class shopping, with shops from all the big designer chains.

The area is characterised by large apartments, the majority of buildings being equipped with lifts, and a limited number of smaller apartments.

The district is served by metro stations, the Ferrocarrils (offering connections to the areas immediately outside the city), and bus lines.
