The Salas House

© Pep Escoda

The Tarragonan architect Ramon Salas i Ricomà built his own house in 1907 using the building codes that typified the Modernists, such as the depiction of historical elements. The house, comprising a ground floor and three stories, stands on a corner and its edge is faced in ashlar stones cut to give a special volume to the two walls. A gallery on the corner both separates and unites the angle of the walls and at the same time indicates the main floor of the building. As the stories rise, their windows and mouldings diminish in size and change in appearance. The cladding of the façade is made more imaginative by the pinnacles breaking up its horizontality.
