Casa Calvet is a building in Carrer de Casp, 48 de la Dreta de l’Eixample, in Barcelona (Spain, Catalonia) and is listed as a cultural asset of national interest.

It was designed in 1898 by the architect Antoni Gaudí by the order of Juliana Pintó i Roldós, widow of the textile manufacturer of Sant Genís de Vilassar Pere Màrtir Calvet i Carbonell and representative of the company Successors of Pere Calvet.

In 1900, the building won the Barcelona City Council award for the best building of the year and was used both for businesses (the ground floor and the basement) and residences, located on the upper floors.

Three sculpted heads at the top also allude to the owner: Sant Pere Màrtir Calvet i Carbonell (the owner’s father) and two patron saints of Vilassar, Andreu Calvet’s home town.

Address: C/ de Casp, 48, P BJ, Eixample, 08010 Barcelona, Spain.
