david cardelús is an experienced architectural photographer that specializes in capturing contemporary architecture, creating compelling images that are both artworks and specific communication tools. in his latest project, his aim is to rediscover art nouveau in barcelona. contemporary to gaudí and other important names of catalan architecture of the modernist era like domènech i montaner, puig i cafadalch, and enric sagnier, the works of jenori granell concentrated mostly on apartment buildings that can be found in different parts of barcelona like 122 girona and 184 mallorca, to mention some.

built in 1903, the small house at 75 padua street in soft green and saturated red colors, clearly show granell’s style marks in the use of sgraffito with natural motifs on the façade and stained glass windows on the first floor balcony. a prior renovation of the interior spaces of the house completely transformed them to conform current living standard regulations. the works of jeroni granell have remained almost unnoticed for many years, deserving public attention.
