Antoni Gaudí’s first house

Casa Vicens is the first house that Antoni Gaudí receives, ordered by Manel Vicens, who worked as a bróker in Barcelona in 1883. The house took two years to build and was the summer house for the Vicens family.

This iconic work is declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005.

The young Gaudí is a singular and advanced architect, in this first work he already demonstrates an innovative creativity and design for the time with architectural and decorative solutions that dazzle for his imagination and his technique. The house was extended in 1925 by Joan Baptista Serra de Martínez because the family converted the summer house into their usual home.

It is not until 2018 that the architects David García, Elías Torres and José Antonio Martinez Lapeña with the help of expert restorers turn it into the house museum that today is owned by Banca Mora.

The study of signage needs of the new museum was done by Signes’ wayfinding technicians supported by Mucho branding company, expert professionals in graphic design for signage of spaces.

Signes has also made all the manufacturing and industrial assembly of the signage of the four plants with the maximum respect to the building and under the premise that in this project, less is more.

The minimalist signs have been placed only in the essential places, using materials and discrete finishes, fulfilling the function of identifying an unknown space and solving the communication and signaling problems of this unique museum house.
