In Barcelona there is a very special and popular quarter that is becoming a benchmark both for people who live in and enjoy the city, and for tourists eager to discover the most captivating spots, amid the narrow streets and broad avenues of the city, which are recovering their former splendor.
The Sant Antoni and Poble Sec district, which is only a few steps from our Eric Vökel Gran Via Suites luxury apartment building, offers—on a daily basis—the latest trends in cuisine, store-workshops boasting savoire faire and amazing spaces like Estudio Sauvage —one of the most recent additions.
More than a traditional florist, the team behind Estudio Sauvage describe it as a workshop—open to the public—, where they create surprisingly imaginative and distinct botanical projects. The initiative was founded by Laura González and Chabeli Rodríguez, two “florists” with years and years of experience under their belt.
A former corner store—which was closed for more than a dozen years— alongside the home of the family that ran it, now houses the “botanical workshop.” It’s a fascinating place that still retains many of the original architectural elements, from wooden doors to chipped walls and tiles—all of which provide a fantastic setting for Laura and Chabeli’s creations. In fact, they restored the space themselves, to turn an already unique space into a perfectly imperfect environment ideal for exhibiting their marvelous and moving creativity, expressed in the artistic language they know best.
A unique and authentic space also used for private events, photo shoots or advertisements, a perfect location for each event.
Estudio Sauvage is precisely 6 minutes away from our Eric Vökel Gran Vía Suites apartments, and only 3 minutes from one of the restaurants you just can’t miss when in the Catalan capital: the fabulous Tickets Bar, which is one of the latest additions to the Adriá universe.
We’re particularly proud to be able to recommend, for guests staying at our luxury suites in Barcelona, initiatives and proposals like Estudio Sauvage, this new floral store and workshop, which combines formal elements with natural ones, in their purest and wildest form.
