Casa Burés showcases a complete range of Modernist art forms and is bursting with colours, shapes and materials. The ceilings are no exception.
Some include beautiful paintings while others feature tiny bits of nacre that create graceful silvery silhouettes dancing like a silk fabric in the play of natural light at certain times of the day. Others boast a very typical Modernist element: high-relief plaster mouldings featuring exceptional decorative compositions.
This type of moulding was highly characteristic of the period and replaced the wooden beams and ceilings popular in previous centuries. Because each architect created his own design, these signature mouldings ensure that no two buildings are exactly alike. Architect Francesc Berenguer i Mestres decorated the ceilings in Casa Burés with elegant floral motifs.
