Casa Calvet (1989-1900) in the center of Barcelona is a quite inconspicuous building with baroque elements. It is probably the most conventional work built by the architect Antoni Gaudí. The facades seem to be symmetric and harmonious, which is really untypical for Gaudí. His preferred curved lines, oblique pillars and colors are missing. The gables and the balcony in cloverleaf shape have modern elements. The dwelling was built for the textile manufacture Don Pedro Mártir Cavlet and it’s located in a wealthy residential area in Barcelona.
