In 2000 and 2001 the Workshop was a hive of activity. On the one hand, we were busy creating for the
restaurant; on the other hand, there were new projects such the elBullihotel, we were advising companies and writing our trilogy. All this
made for overwhelmingly feverish activity. In late 1999 we had bought a 260 m² premises in the calle del Carmen, on top of the Boqueria
market. In the middle of 2001 we decided that the sensible thing to do would be to put some order into this madness. To prevent creativity for
the restaurant from being affected in any way by this expansion, we had to devote the Portaferrissa Workshop to it. This is why elBullicarmen
came about, a facility for centralising all the activities that had no direct link with creativity.
