61 Transforming Domestic Space Apart from two remarkable country houses, Gaudí’s secular and domestic architecture, surveyed in this chapter, is predominantly urban. Of these urban projects the majority were for Barcelona, and they are landmarks in the city’s growth. All the buildings offer important perspectives on the social and cultural aspects of the Catalan Renaixença. Not only does this series of commissions document Gaudí’s reflection on Catalan traditions of architecture, but they also serve as a testament to the economic development of Barcelona and a new class of wealthy patrons; it is interesting to note that a number of these houses combined offices and warehouse space for the commodities which their owners dealt in.

The Casa Batlló and Casa Milà are Gaudí’s contribution to Cerdà’s plan and each are based on the type of house established by the Eixample. Projects such as the Park Güell were also inspired by the aim to improve urban life, but in a less abstract way. Finally, the scope of Cerdà’s plan is a representative example of the new spirit that animated the minds of Barcelona’s architects and patrons. While Gaudí and his contemporaries, the generation of Modernisme, thought very differently to Cerdà they all shared the confidence and vision to plan on a bold and grand scale.

One reason for this was the need for money. ” Thus the designs for the Mataró workers should be read as a young architect responding to opportunities to launch his career. However, Gaudí’s aspirations to design more complex buildings with better budgets, as well as rewards, would allow him to explore the stylistic possibilities of Modernisme with its eclectic approach, and this would have also influenced his decision to seek other clients. Before turning to examine the ideas Gaudí allied himself with as an established architect there are two other examples of him working on practical projects at a later point in his career.
