This special Greenwich awning in white with contrasting Dior graphics presents an elegant compliment  to the beautiful Casa Juan Coma building located on the famous Paseo de Gracia avenue in Barcelona. Morco have manufactured this awning which was then installed  by one of our partner installers based in Barcelona. The Greenwich awning has elegant clean lines that are perfectly suited to boutiques, hotels and historical buildings of this type both here in the UK and on the continent.

The building on which the awning is installed, refurbished by the famous architect Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia, won an award in 1908, assigned by “Ayuntamiento de Barcelona” (City Council). It is in the style made famous by the internationally acclaimed modernist architect Antoni Gaudí.  Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (25 June 1852 – 10 June 1926) was a Spanish Catalan architect from Reus and the best known practitioner of Catalan Modernism. Gaudí's works reflect an individualized and distinctive style. 

Most are located in Barcelona, including his magnum opus, the Sagrada Família. Gaudí's work was influenced by his passions in life: architecture, nature, and religion. Gaudí considered every detail of his creations and integrated into his architecture such crafts as ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironwork forging and carpentry. He also introduced new techniques in the treatment of materials, such as trencadís which used waste ceramic pieces.
