Can Corbella

Can Corbella is one of the most representative examples of the pre-modernist era, in which the Neo-Mudéjar style was one of the main forms of expression. It is an apartment building that was renovated at the end of the 19th century according to the plans of the master builder, Nicolás Lliteras. It is the result of a refurbishment that unified three façades. The ground floor, used as commercial premises, features horseshoe arches and colourful stained glass windows. Above, the façade is organised over three upper floors, and the top floor is set back, according to the original alignment of the buildings and crowned by a small octagonal tower. The most extraordinary feature of the building is the resolution of the façade, which was built over the former building like a second skin, and made entirely out of wood. Until 1985, it was home to Corbella chemists, hence the building’s name. Its interior has recently been subject to renovation and many of its original elements have been replaced
