BARCELONA – Casagrand luxury apartments offer guests an unforgettable immersive experience in Catalan culture with the intimacy and bespoke touches of a home away from home. Casagrand reflects the city’s rich Spanish art and history throughout its 13 individual apartments, sophisticated design, personalized service and array of contemporary amenities. Perfect for groups and catering to the needs of families and multigenerational travel, guests will enjoy a seamless sojourn to explore this European cultural capital, centrally located on Avenida Diagonal, in the heart of this much sought after destination.
Located in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods of Barcelona – amidst Gaudi's phantasmagoric and flamboyant creations – is Casagrand’s iconic building designed in 1929 by the esteemed and prolific architect Enric Sagnier. His eclectic style from neoclassical and modernist to neo-gothic, can be seen in many of city’s landmarks that he designed including the Palau de Justícia, the Caixa de Pensions, the Duana (New Customs House) and the Tibidabo Cathedral del Sagrat Cor, to name a few.
Casagrand welcomes aesthetes and special works from the city's artistic avant-garde showcased in both the public areas and private apartments, transmitting the essence of Spain’s contemporary art scene. Exhibiting pieces by acclaimed local artists include Alicia Kopf, Regina Gimenéz and Joan Fontcuberta. This is a utopia for those who dream of spending a night, or preferably more, in museum-worthy surrounds.
The spacious and light filled apartment interiors are done with sleek, contemporary design complementing the building’s original structures, wainscoting and textural ceiling details. The furnishings run the gamut of acclaimed local and international designers including Belgium’s Dome Deco and Serax, B&B Italia and Gervasoni, to local producers Santa & Cole and Mobenia Luxury. Modernist art, cozy yet design-forward furnishings and elegant décor come together to create a space that is both compelling and ready to be lived in.
All rooms in the spacious 226 square meter Summum Apartments face out towards to the city, offering some of the most spectacular views in Barcelona. These well-appointed apartments accommodate up to nine guests, and feature five bedrooms and four bathrooms – three of them en suite, perfect for families with a nanny or extra guest.
Enjoy bustling city views from the living rooms of the 200 square meter Premium Apartments and then retire into total solace and privacy in one of four bedrooms for a restful night’s sleep. These apartments boast two inside-facing double bedrooms, two inside-facing twin bedrooms and three bathrooms – two of them en suite.
For couples or individuals looking for privacy in an entrancing, light-filled space, the 60 square meter Top Floor Penthouse is the ideal accommodation complete with expansive private terrace. It features one double bedroom, one sofa bed in the living room, one en suite bathroom and one washroom.
All apartments feature sound proofed rooms, 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, Molton Brown guest essentials, handcrafted mattresses made with natural materials and a pillow menu.
