Outstanding among the work of the other architects who were active in Reus during this period are the work of Joan Rubió i Bellver, also from Reus and influenced by the style of Gaudí (Chalet Serra, Tuberculosis Dispensary and Casa Serra), and Pere Domènech i Roura, the son of Domènech i Montaner (Casa Marcó).

This and the Institut Pere Mata are the finest pieces of architecture in the town. The house was commissioned by the Reus merchant Joaquim Navàs. The different decorative and architectural elements of the fine façade are inspired by gothic and plateresque styles.

The shop on the ground floor is highly interesting, as it has been preserved almost intact since it was built. This building has been declared a historic-artistic monument. Visits can be arranged.
