In residence with Gaudi – pt.2

From the street, Casa Batlló is a tiled fantasy. Inside, it loses the formality of Palau Güell, it’s like a drift of shapes with colours largely reminiscent of the sea. In the lightwell as you look up, the tiling goes from palest to a quite dark blue. Ceilings swirl, doors and windows aren’t square, the rooftop undulates (but then, so does the roof of Palau Güell!).

Outside, there is a rooftop garden – although it isn’t clear whose rooftop the garden is on!

And the roof is another riot of tiling, including the spine of a dragon.

Finished off with views, near and far.
