Very bad restoration inside because they destroyed the whole Modernism interiors.

Outside is more or less OK, except the ugly new rooftop.


@GGJ16:
Sorry to tell you my personal opinion, but NN destroyed so many beautiful gems in BCN that many people do not like this company.
For example: NN destroyed some parts of Casa Golferichs too...

I totally agree with you, but in my posts I never give my personal opinion, since I'm just showing the building itself. The restoration doesn't respect really respect La Rotonda, since the interiors are essential in modernisme... We've waited many years to see this beautiful building back in action, but the "modern addons" were not necessary at all.

PS: Bitxofo, be careful with double posts

What an unfortunate design, given the proximity to Barceloneta, Estacio de Franca, and the ruins. Utilitarian architecture should have no place in the historic city center. I thought the 80s were over.

I totally agree with you. Given the location, this building would have looked much better in other developement areas, like [email protected] district. There it would be a rather nice filler.
