on friday i joined 2 friends of mine, paula and xavi, to spend the day with architect miquel subiràs, and visit some of his work around the hostalric and olot area of catalunya. our first stop was his lastest work the renovation of a building in the center of hostalric. with a magnificent view, this building has been turned into a center for gastronomy for catalunya, domus sent soví. on the ground floor the space is divided between a showcase for the best catalan produce, from cheese to wine to oils. with a center of learning, and an area for workshops and courses. on the lower floor there is and area for classes while the top floor is a wonderful bar and restaurant. the center is not yet fully functional, but can still be visited. with little intervention of the existing structure, forms and shapes have been added to the interior to create dark spaces and a sleek design in which to learn and sample the food. one new piece of his furniture was also the tables on wheels, that held the two chairs inside.
