The decorative elements found on the balconies, crowns and façades of buildings require maintenance, not just to ensure they are safe but also to keep their richness.
Many façades in Barcelona are decorated with an admirable variety of sgraffiatos. One of the merits of the building restoration campaign is that it has contributed towards recovering this wealth of decoration.
Thanks to the work carried out in the campaign, Barcelona's urban landscape has lost the grey patina left by the passage of time and the wealth of colour is being restored to its architecture.
The creation of a painted mural or "trompe-l'oeil" giving the illusion of original architectural elements that have disappeared is one of the solutions being applied in façade and party-wall restoration.
