The building is intended to applied research in the fields of Biotech, Nanotech and new technologies. In one approach to the place where the building is located, the interest is found to activate the center of the block, linking it to the open space of the street and providing passage through the building, to convert the existing pubic space in a meeting point. The presence of the building intended to link, but not figuratively, with the existing built front, proposing, abstractly, a continuity in the skin texture of the traditional city. We propose a building conceived from separate components that can be produced industrially and with similarities with the place, in order to get a body built very flexible for its subsequent uses, including its deconstruction. The architecture has been designed to act as an interface or balancing factor between the climate conditions outside and inside, not a watertight barrier but as a membrane that filters and exchanges with the surrounding conditions. The facade has an efficient envelope that responds to all the physical requirements of the building - structure, screening, natural light, insulation and services.

Owner approach of sustainability
The LEITAT FOUNDATION, under the collaboration agreement with the Leitat Technology Center, needs appropriate facilities to implement in the 22"arroba" sector Barcelona of a building for applied research, with the aim of consolidating service delivery to companies providing them an industrial sector of high technological value, taking the projected location in this neighborhood, the intention to create new activities coordinated with companies located in the district of innovation and social partners in the Biotech, Nanotech areas, and new technologies.
The construction of a new building is proposed to house the Leitat technology center to act as a new way to link to existing networks. The main objective of the proposal is to enable the center of the island and link it to the open space of the street. The objective is to project and execute a unique building of 2,390 m2 above ground that will try to combine the highest standards in energy efficiency management and home automation, with the aim that the building itself happens to be a technological project. The initial design is projected for about 120 people, but the flexibility in facilities will adapt to ongoing projects and will make this figure can vary significantly. The main volume on the street facade Pallars has a maximum height of 22 meters to put it in relation to the height of the volume of existing office building and the maximum height of the consolidated front.

Gros œuvre / Structure, maçonnerie, façade
Surround system based dry cement pieces pressed fiber without metal reinforcement; with the inclusion in the mass of nanoparticles to refract light, incorporating a luminescent effect and photo-catalytic acquiring (NO2 absorption) properties.
By the actors and workers is an excellent material because it is characterized by its quick and easy assembly, apart from the ecological advantages photocatalysis getting cleaner air.
Filtron slab to cover cistern

Gros œuvre / Charpente, couverture, étanchéité
Indoor storage tank for rainwater, based on maintaining a natural substrate wetted by capillarity.
By the actors it was readily accepted by the advantages of saving in irrigation of vegetation cover by storing water through the slabs allow filtering this.

Second œuvre / Revêtements de sol
Sedum blanket, produced 100% biodegradable coconut on a blanket, a mixture of substrate and 8-11 Sempergreen varieties of sedum. Suitable for covering roofs of buildings and extensive landscaped areas with low maintenance.
Quick and easy assembly, durable and with native plants

Second œuvre / Équipements intérieurs
Prefabricated concrete hollow core slabs which through them extract and renew the air inside
Quick assembly and consequently we reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, radiation bring into stays all the inertia of the material, heat or cool the interior is stored on the plates and radiates inwards along night, getting temper and maintain the temperature, reducing demand building energy.
The building in the neighborhood Understanding 22 "arroba" as an overlay network that energize the pole of the city, you need to think in a building that acts as a new way to link to existing networks and also helps to generate value in this shared system. In the neighborhood several specific networks converge generically could identify how; network of companies that generate knowledge and economic value, MOBILITY network in terms of communication and transport, energy network linked to the distribution of different production systems and finally centralized network services to boost activity in the neighborhood. The building / the place A further approximation to the place where the building has to be located, we appreciate the need to activate a center island, until now residual, linking the open space of the street and simultaneously promoting the passage of pedestrians through it, to turn this empty space in a home for people meeting the very middle of the city. The arrangement on the ground floor of the center bar, closely linked to the public space, reinforces this intention. In this regard, we propose a massing that is itself a great porch that serves as shelter for uses related to this meeting place, and at the same time to open the maximum visual center line to the street island. The presence of the building intended to link to, but not figuratively, with the existing built front abstractly proposing a continuity in the skin texture of the traditional city. FLEXIBLE BUILDING, FUNCTION, SURROUNDING Our project proposes a very flexible built body, to the extent that has an efficient envolvent that responds to all the physical requirements of the building - structure, screening of natural light, insulation and provides services - so that indoor plants are completely diaphanous and suitable for any functional adaptation.
Land plot area
Floor -2: 445.8 m2; -3 Floor: 400.74 will be available 26 car spaces with dimensions of 2.2x4.5, one of 2x4.5, two of 2.85x4.5 and one of 4.15x 4.5. Therefore the total number of parking lots its for 30 vehicles. The number ofnecessary lots for motorcycles 3, the project includes 7 motorcycles lots all of 1x2m. The required number of places of bikes 24. A number of 26 bikes 0.8x2m for every two lots are provided. The ramps will have a width of 3 meters and a maximum gradient of 20%. There will be a parking access with a width of 3 meters. The slope will be 4% of 4.5 meters. With the application of Article 6 of Decree (loading and unloading of goods) a reserve of 1 square intended for urban freight distribution (1 space per 2,000 m2 of roof dedicated to administrative equipment, equated offices) was made. We will have to signal this square on the street, before the PITCH.
