Rosalía’s plans to settle in Barcelona and produce her music here continue, for which she is in the process of renovating an office building in l’Hospitalet, where she will install a recording studio to work on her future projects. The space, located on Can Pi street, next to Fira Gran Via, is already under construction, according to sources from the Consistory, which has held several meetings with Pilar Tobella, Rosalía’s mother, to promote the project.

The space will also house the offices of Motomami SL, a family business created by the singer in 2019, on which two other companies created later depend: Racinetas Productions SL and Tresmamis SL, the latter dedicated to “the promotion, construction, purchase, sale , leasing and marketing in general of all types of buildings, land, plots, rural and urban properties,” according to the record.

The Barcelona studio Arquitectura G will be in charge of carrying out the renovation of the building, for which the building permit to build both offices and a recording studio is already in process. The firm, followed by Rosalía on her Instagram account, was founded in 2006 by Jonathan Arnabat, Jordi Ayala-Bril, Igor Urdampilleta and Aitor Fuentes, and has been in charge of renovating the house of Barcelona DJ John Talabot, also in Barcelona. Their works have earned them several awards, such as the Mies van der Rohe award for emerging architect in 2015, the FAD architecture award 2022, the AJAC architecture award in the category of built work in 2014 and two awards from the Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism.

For its part, the Hospitalet de Llobregat City Council is excited about the opening of the recording studio, which will be one of the best equipped in Europe. Its location is near the old Godó and Trias factory, where a visual arts center will open, promoted by the Stoneweg Places fund.

Rosalía’s interest in settling in Barcelona was made known in December of last year, when RAC1 announced that the artist from Sant Esteve Sesrovires was planning to create a music studio and was looking for a house in the Vallvidrera area to convert into her residence after spending the last few years in the United States, where he moved between Miami, New York and Los Angeles, the city where he recorded his last album released to date, Motomami.

That the recording studio of one of the world’s leading singers is installed in l’Hospitalet strongly promotes the city’s commitment to attracting the so-called “cultural migration.” In addition to a good number of new galleries, artists’ studios that occupy entire buildings and spaces that are already authentic creative incubators, such as La Infinita, El Pumarejo, Freixa, La Tonal’H, Espai Salamina, FASE, Trama 34, Cobalt. ..

And we must not forget that, last December, the La Caixa Foundation announced that it would transform its current warehouse in l’Hospitalet into a new cultural facility, the ArtStudio CaixaForum, which will bring together the 1,069 works from its contemporary art collection, one of the most relevant private sector in Europe, and will also be a research space and think tank or exchange point for professionals of art, culture and thought. Something is moving in l’Hospitalet… with height.
