THE CONDEMINAS FAMILY, SHIPOWNERS AND CUSTOMS OFFICERS, WERE THE CREATORS OF THIS MODERNIST BUILDING
In 1902, once Barcelona’s wall to the sea was pulled down, the company Centro de Navieros Aseguradores commissioned the architect Josep Pujol i Brull to construct a building to house their headquarters. The offices were set on the main floor, which was later occupied by the Condeminas maritime agency, from where the building got its name.
Casa Condeminas is located at number 11 on the Passeig de Colom, just in front of Barcelona’s marina, the Real Club Náutico —a leading centre in the Mediterranean nautical scene with over 140 years of history— and the Port Vell Marina —a world-class marina for superyachts with an exclusive location in the heart of the city—. It could be said that Casa Condeminas is the most maritime modernist building in Barcelona. The views from its balconies, including the iconic shape of mount Monjuïc, are unique in the city.
