The Ximenis House

© Pep Escoda

Josep Maria Jujol refurbished the house of Doctor Ximenis, the canon of the Cathedral in 1914. Noteworthy features of the building include the way the façade has been finished with sgraffito framing the windows and doors, and the differences in the apertures on each floor. The balustrades are made from knotted iron except for the horizontal one on the roof. Jujol installed seats in the balcony angles as if they were lateral supports, a trick he would use at a later date in the Bofarull dels Pallaresos house.
