The Bofarull House

© Pep Escoda

Josep Maria Pujol dreamt up an apartment house on the corner between Rambla Nova and Carrer Sant Agustí for the Bofarull brothers in 1920. On both façades he applied a series of ornamental features which were very common on other private buildings in the city: houses that preferred two façades, structured from a central 'hinge', in this case featuring thin vertical sashes hanging from circles which embellish the balconies and galleries, with leaves and flowers distributed along the iron railings and windows enhanced by strong mouldings.
