Where do you live?
In the Eixample neighbourhood.
Why do you like it?
Because of the architecture of the Modernist buildings like Casa Batlló and La Pedrera and many others that are not so well known. Apart from that you are in the centre of the city and very close to everything you need!
Which is your favourite area of Barcelona?
I love El Born, which is very bohemian and charming, but my favourite is the east part of Eixample.
Which is your favourite Barcelona store?
The Outpost on Rosselló, where you can find very cool, little-known brands.
Do you have a store of your own in the city?
Yes, we have a showroom atelier in Eixample, on Mallorca. I chose this location as I love the area and have always lived there.
Which are your favourite restaurants in Barcelona?
I am a huge fan of Fonda Gaig on Córcega and Freixa Tradició on Sant Elies. Both restaurants cook traditional cuisine brilliantly with very high standards of quality.
Can you recommend any local dishes to try?
Cap i pota, a casserole dish with white beans, beef and onions. Delicious!
From which place are the best views of Barcelona to be seen?
I like the views from the Collserola mountain.
Where do you take out-of-town friends?
We always go for a walk to the Gotic neighbourhood and always find something great and brand new!
Is there a bar you visit regularly?
I don’t usually go out at night, but there is a new cocktail-bar called Bocachica on Passatge de la Concepció that it is quite trendy and is part of the Bocagrande restaurant.
How do you like to travel around?
Walking and when the weather is nice, which is almost all the year, by bike.
Which is your favourite monument in Barcelona? And your favourite museum?
La Pedrera is my favourite monument and, regarding the museums, Caixa Forum is the best one. They have very interesting temporary exhibitions I love to visit in my spare time.
Any advice for visitors?
Barcelona is the perfect city to discover by walking around and getting lost in its secret streets.
Can you recommend any good hotels?
The Alma on Carrer de Mallorca.
Is there a Catalan artist or designer that you particularly admire?
Dani Martí, who creates amazing sculptures.
Where do you run away to relax?
I usually go for a walk along the beach very early in the morning.
What can’t you live without?
Without the last apps I have just downloaded from my iPad!
