The architects Oliver Franz Schmidt, Natali Canas del Pozo and Lucas Echeveste Lacy form El Equipo Creativo, an interior design studio based in Barcelona and specialized in the interior design of gastronomic, commercial and brand flag spaces.
Their work together began in 2010, with the interior design for the emblematic restaurant Tickets and the 41º cocktail bar from Ferran and Albert Adriá. Since then they have realized several projects which have been recognized in numerous international interior design awards, for example the prestigious Restaurant and Bar Design Awards, The Great Indoors Awards, FX International Award, Best of the Year Award or AIT Interior Contract Award. Their interior design projects have been published in paper and web publications in more than twenty countries.
El Equipo Creativo begins now a new professional phase with international projects and as the directors of the Master of Interior Design at the Instituto Europeo di Design de Barcelona.
El Equipo Creativo has completed the interior design of El Palau Fugit. Located deep in Girona’s atmospheric Barri Vell (Old Quarter), the award-winning studio converted a disused 18th-century palace into a destination hotel as charming and seductive as Girona itself.
Hidden in the underground of the Madrilenian neighborhood “Barrio de Las Letras” (today a neuralgic point of the city), under a refurbished palace of the eighteenth century where Hotel Axel Madrid is located, we find two vaulted spaces built in brick.
