You live in Poblenou, a neighbourhood next to the sea and full of creative studios. How do you and the children enjoy it?
P: We love our neighbourhood, there are few cars, lots of bikes and it is close to the sea. We meet lots of creative friends on the street: some architects having a work meeting on a bar terrace; Nordic furniture experts chatting at their shop door; artists riding their bike with their kids; stylists carrying some clothes for some fashion shooting; video clip shoots, there’s always something happening!
