Modernist houses

Initially the style manifested itself in the decorative arts in particular, incorporating it in 19th century works. This is the case of the Reyes jewellers' shop.

 

Modernist houses Modernism was introduced to Seville by a new bourgeoisie which was eager to show its position and a generation of architects who were keen to adopt new European trends. Initially the style influenced decorative arts in particular and was incorporated to 19th century works. This is the case of the Reyes jewellers' shop, whose interior boasts a magnificent modernist styling comparable to the best of its kind in Europe.
Modernist houses In 1903, José Gómez Otero built the first modernist building in the city at Calle Jerónimo Hernández 18-20. In 1904, his son in law, Aníbal González, built the gothic-like façade of the sacrarium of the Church of El Santo Ángel, very similar in style to Catalan modernism. Some of the works of his modernist period include the Café París in La Campana (no longer standing) with a splendid tower in glass and iron, and the twin buildings of Calle Alfonso XII 27-29, with their highly original decoration. In his industrial buildings, such as the Fábrica de Enrique Ramírez in Torneo (1908-1909), functional requirements led González to follow the ideas of the Vienese School. The modernist house in Tomás de Ibarra 9 was built in 1905 by Simón Barris y Bes whilst the building in Orfila 11 was built by José Espiau in 1908, at a time when the movement was at its peak in the city. Soon afterwards, a more regionalist style took over.
