Can negre Sant Joan Despí by ortisfarre

Can Negre was commissioned by the rich lawyer Pere Negre i Jover enlisting the architect Josep Maria Jujol in 1915 to rehabilitate rehabilitar a country house dating from 1680. Jujol, famous in Sant Joan Despí for having built the la Creu tower, decided to completely transform the building. So, loyal to the premises of Modernism, he created a magical, Baroque and imaginative atmosphere to both the inside and outside of the building.
