The El Bulli Lab is a recently renovated food lab that was put together by the Francesc Rifé Studio using a space that was formally a textile studio. The space updates the structural surroundings to suit food research initiatives and act as a innovative hub for experimentation. The architectural design by Francesc Rifé Studio reflects this with modern design, polycarbonate panelling and open concept layouts.

The El Bulli Lab space belongs to chef Ferran Adria and acts as a science hall for conducting experiments in and around food. Utilizing the makeshift design of the former textile factory, Francesc Rifé Studio uses the existing wooden panelling to create segmented sliding walls with polycarbonate that can be used to separate areas as well as render them open concept. Other features include boardrooms, meeting rooms and offices with a industrial aesthetic.
