The power of nature and the power of public spending combine in Sant Martí, a coastal neighborhood with a penchant for fiscal business and tech-savvy entrepreneurialism. Towering office buildings rise from the same concrete as modest, multi-family apartment complexes. Whether residents are seeking solace during their lunch break or a leisurely walk along the sand, Sant Martí's beaches promise endless opportunity for deep blue serenity.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

The Weaver House
Hannah and Kelty are twin sisters from Portland, Oregon. After studying foreign languages together at Stanford University they parted ways, moving to Barcelona & San Francisco. Re-uniting in 2010, they launched The Weaver House: a collaboration in photography, design, and fashion. They shoot with polaroid, 35mm and digital, gravitating toward organic and unique personalities, spaces, and unions.
Lorenzo Vecchia is a Barcelona-based photographer specialising in architecture, interiors and still life. He is fascinated by digital photography as the creative process continues beyond the moment when the image is captured. Working out of his studio in Barcelona's old town, his graphic aesthetic has led him to work for a variety of clients from advertising through to editorial and design.
