Alicante and Costa Blanca, architectural richness: Casa Carbonell

Casa Carbonell is an emblematic building in Alicante, located at number 2 of the Spain Promenade that occupies a complete block. It was built by J. Vidal Ramos during the 1920s at the request of the bourgeois Enrique Carbonell, a fabric manufacturer. This building represents the aspirations of the bourgeoisie of the time: ornamented facade and use of noble materials with privileged views.

Although currently it is filled with commercial premises, offices and homes; it was a building devoted to the textile manufacture that represented the bourgeois aspirations and the enrichment of the textile industry during the First World War.

Its facade is divided into three parts separated by the towers and is based on the concept of symmetry and hierarchy. Its French-style ornamentation is full of classic elements. It highlights the use of noble materials such as sandstone in the base, marble in the foyer, iron and glass in locks and canopies, or the simulated cover slate.

Currently, this building is still one of the most emblematic in Alicante and is the protagonist of a large number of tourist postcards in the city.
