Torrent de l’Olla


Beetle Wars

Someone told us about a lady in Gràcia who married an American and lived most of the year in the state of Illinois. But she never gave up her identity, her origins or her Catalan language. She held on to her Gràcia roots in the land of Al Capone.

Her family’s property was in the Torrent de l’Olla street. It was an old, noble building where she had lived for years. It was built at the time when Gràcia was a summer resort for middle-class families of Barcelona.

This wonderful building was under attack by a dangerous enemy— a silent and virtually invisible predator. Beetles.

They can invade your home without you noticing and defeat you almost soundlessly. These armies of insects feed on wood, and the building’s beam structure was turning into their succulent feast. Things were in such a state that living in the building had turned difficult and the structure required in-depth work. The distance between the United States and Barcelona did not make it any easier for our friend to keep up her family property and she deserved someone who could take charge of returning this building to its original 1920s splendour.

The risk of infecting neighbouring properties and the safety of tenants who still lived in the building called for urgent action. We did not have to think about it too much, so we prepared for Beetle Wars. And as can be expected, in the end, like in movies with a happy ending, the good guys won.
