This Catalan-modernist style building dating from the beginning of the 20th century was designed by the architect Telm Fernández i Janot
The opportunity to enjoy a guided visit to Casa Felip, the current headquarters of the Fundació Vila Casas, which is located at number 16-18 Carrer d'Ausiàs March, doesn’t come by very frequently. So, if you’re interested in exploring this example of Catalan-modernist architecture by Telm Fernández i Janot, take advantage of the chance offered on Friday 23 September by the organisation Cases Singulars. The visit is scheduled to begin at 12 noon and costs €12. Make sure you book your visit early to avoid disappointment.
The residential quarters are located on the main floor of the house and were the home of the Felip family, who commissioned the construction of the house to the architect in 1901. Highlight of the hall and the main floor are the stained glass windows, engravings and elements in cast iron, which are all characteristic of Catalan modernism. During the course of its life the building has been occupied by Salesian monks, the Noguera i Vintró textile company and the Círculo Condal. Cases Singulars is an organisation that aims to make private architectural patrimony more accessible to the general public through guided visits and the organisation of activities such as concerts and conferences. After the visit scheduled for 23 September there will be additional tours on 21 October, 18 November and 16 December.
