El Olivar is a restoration project for the Tragaluz group, located in the Maldà arcade, in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, an area that receives high tourist and local resident flows and one with high commercial exposure. It comprises an architectural programme that seeks to integrate pure materials and olive trees, one of the principal ingredients of the cuisine and culture of this region, through a variety of spaces.

“Just as the branches of the olive tree spread and their fruit is born, so El Olivar is born of a new culinary experience, where architecture is part of every user’s journey, which enables them to discover the different spaces.”
