Developed in 1896 as a textile factory, between 1907 and 1910 this building was turned into the family home of the industrialist Josep Freixa. The alterations were undertaken by the architect Lluís Muncunill i Parellada. At the beginning of the 20th century the Modernist style was disseminated by architects like Josep M. Coll i Bacardí and Melcior Viñals, as well as by Muncunill himself.
The house has a structure of arches and vaults inspired by Gaudí, white walls and a tall tower. The shiny grey aspect of the original roof is a result of small pieces of glass being added to the mortar. The porch has a white ceramic handrail.
The garden, which was designed by the period artist Rafael Benet i Vancells, is of the Romantic style.
