The original building was built in 1875 by Antoni Robert. In 1898, the Amatller family commissioned its reform to architect Puig i Cadafalch, who combined the neo-Gothic style with an unusual stepped gable, inspired by the architectural style of houses in the Netherlands.
You can visit the concierge’s office, where the perfectly-preserved décor includes one of the finest stained-glass windows of the Modernist period.
The block in the Eixample district where Batlló House, Amatller House, and Lleó Morera House are located became popularly known as the "Illa of discord" (Block of Discord) due to the disparity of architectural elements among the buildings there, all dating from the early 20th century. In all three cases, restoration work has been carried out on existing buildings.
