The design is following Catalan modernistic style, a well-recognizable feature of Antoni Gaudí, and it has many organic and skeletal qualities – Casa Batlló also carries the name Casa dels Ossos (House of Bones) amongst the locals. Both the façade and the interior of the building are spectacular examples of Gaudí’s architectural vision creating organic, non-linear lines and harmoniously integrated sections displayed both in the interior and exterior of Casa Batlló.
The house was kept in the family of Batlló up until 1954, when an insurance company Seguros Iberia bought it for a well-located use of office space. Several refurbishments, including renovating the balconies at the façade and the interior rooms of the building, took place in the 70s and 80s. When new owners acquired the house in 1993, renovations continued up until 1995 when Casa Batlló started hosting several important events for the city.
