The renovation of Casa Burés not only preserves the building’s structure and its listed decorative elements, but also maintains all the advantages of its modernist architecture: light, space, habitability, high-quality materials and maximum comfort.
When it was first built, leading modernist architects worked hand-in-hand with some of the best artists and master craftspeople of their time.
“It’s important for us to do the same now”
Constructed between 1900 and 1905, Casa Burés takes its name from its first owner, Francesc Burés, owner of Industrias Burés, one of Spain’s most successful textile companies.
Originally, the ground floor housed the company’s headquarters while the 1,000 m2 first floor was the Burés family home. The upper floors – which were accessed by one of the first lifts to be installed in Barcelona – then comprised nine 300 m2 rental apartments.
Casa Burés has been masterfully restored to retain the building’s original character, and effortlessly coupled with modern-day sophistication, so that its new owners can enjoy living in a modernist palace that boasts all the comforts of 21st-century amenities.
