The Rafael Maso Foundation has recovered the house where Rafael Maso, a leading architect of Girona, lived until 1912. The house has been restored and preserved as it was when Maso and his family lived. In the same way, the museum is a living testimony of the Noucentista period. Heavily influenced by the Arts & Crafts British Movement and the German regional architecture, Maso wanted to unite the tradition of architecture with the new ideas on the structure and ornamentation of buildings, interior decoration and furniture design.
Rafael Maso was one of the leading architects of the twentieth century. Its architecture is concentrated in the city of Girona and its area of influence. His mainly works are the Farinera Teixidor (1910), the Maso House (1911) and the Athena cultural center (1912) in Girona, the Masramon House in Olot (1913), the Casas House in Sant Feliu de Guixols (1914), and the garden-city of Platja d’Aro (1923).
The Maso House opens from Monday to Friday, except national local holidays. If you want to visit it, you need to reserve, because it can only be visited with a guide and smaller groups of 8 people.
