The Casa Vicens museum project consists in restoring and raising awareness of the first home Gaudí designed, just as the architect conceived of it.
It is imbued with the essence of Gaudí’s world: the construction, decoration and symbols that will be seen throughout his later works.
The current configuration of Casa Vicens and its land is the result of many changes and transformations, with three clearly differentiated spaces: the original construction from 1883 designed by Antoni Gaudí; the expansion from 1925 designed by Joan Baptista Serra de Martínez; and the garden surrounding the building.
Gaudí’s original spaces have been meticulously restored to their original state. Plus, the project has adapted the spaces from the 1925 expansion in order to house the various services needed for the new museum, with a contemporary architectural intervention done with the utmost respect for the original work while also employing daring solutions to valorise and maximise functionality, in line with the innovative spirit of the house.
A museum plan based on research and contents, planning and kicking off a management model that centres on long-term efficiency, sustainability and commitment.
Casa Vicens aims to be a unique space for knowledge, culture, gathering, leisure and enjoyment; an authentic discovery of the extraordinary universe of Gaudí. The visit to the house, with participative museum contents, also includes a permanent collection, temporary exhibitions and a series of cultural and educational activities that integrate various art disciplines for the enjoyment of all visitors.
