Sandra Tarruella, Memorial Gastronomy Award
We’re in the mood for celebration in Hotel Omm! Sandra Tarruella has been distinguished with a Memorial Gastronomy Award. The designer of our hotel has won the prize to “best artistic creator in the gastronomic field” Premio Conde de Los Andes 2016, given out by the Royal Academy of Gastronomy. This would be a more than deserved award. Sandra is actually responsible, as well as for Hotel Omm and among many other of her works, for the interior design of the Grupo Tragaluz restaurants.
In fact, Hotel Omm was Sandra’s first hotel project along with Isabel López, her partner at that time. Still now, 15 years after its opening, the hotel succeeds to surprise for the modernity of its design and for achieving a comfortable and warm atmosphere in which guests feel at home. And how were they able to convey these? With a design that prioritizes natural light and that emphasizes all the different spaces defining which activities take place in each of them, while keeping a perfect sense of harmony and coherence. Furthermore, thinking about everything carefully and taking care of all details in detail, from all corners to the furniture itself.
Tarruella Trenchs Studio’s phylosophy
“We are known for creating spaces that cause emotions.” This is how Sandra, her current partner Ricard Trenchs and their team in Tarruella Trenchs Studio define themselves. Each of their projects becomes “a unique challenge”, an opportunity which they greet by “clearly defining and interpreting the needs and the wishes of our clients”, looking towards the future but respecting the past at the same time.
These Memorial Gastronomy Awards are granted annually to recognize the outstanding work of different personalities for their contribution to gastronomy in different fields –be it the catering, scientific, business or artistic sectors. In this edition they have also distinguished Josep Roca, the three-starred Michelin sommelier of El Celler de Can Roca, with which we’ve been very close since creating together the gastronomic concept of our five-star hotel in Barcelona.
From Hotel Omm, our most sincere congratulations to all!
