French architect Jean Nouvel has renovated a nineteenth century brewery in Barcelona to make way for restaurants, bars, a bakery and a museum.

The renovated Fábrica Moritz is the home of Catalan brewer Moritz, which was first started up in 1856 and relaunched by the Moritz family in 2004 after a 26 year hiatus.

The main production now takes place in Zaragoza but the renovation at Ronda de Sant Antoni contains a small underground brewery with a 25-metre-long tin bar.

Metal brewing tanks are on show inside glass display cases, beside a wall of plants that climb up one side of the building.
