The house where painter Xul Solar lived is located in Laprida Street in the district of Palermo, Buenos Aires. Over 100-years old, the building had two storeys and an attic on a plot of 400 m2. Originally it was a building with four apartments; two at ground level and two on the upper level. Xul Solar lived, until his death in 1963, in the largest one. The architectural program to rebuild the original building, taking into account the new needs aroused by its new destination, was conceived under the guidance of Miacela (Lita) Cadenas, Xul Solar's wife, heiress and responsible for the continuity of his projects and ideas. With this intention she created the Pan Klub Foundation (Fundación Pan Klub) in 1986, an institution dedicated to preserve and diffuse the work of the artist. The museum opened on April 13th 1993.
