The Gaudí House Museum was the residence of the architect Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852-1926) from 1906 to 1925. The building, which was constructed as a show house for the Park Güell residential development project, was designed by Francesc d’Assís Berenguer i Mestres (1866-1914), Gaudí’s friend and right-hand-man.
After Gaudí’s death, the house was acquired and occupied by private owners. Years later, on 28 September 1963, the site opened to the public as the Gaudí House Museum.
Since 1992, the house has been owned by the Construction Board of La Sagrada Família Foundation, which, in line with its goal of disseminating Gaudí’s life and work, has refurbished the building to evoke the period when the architect lived there, as well as exhibiting furniture and other objects that he designed.
