Built up area: 10,000 m2
Nexus I is located on the north campus of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in uptown Barcelona. It was the first example of collaboration with this school, promoted by El Consorci (CZFB) to promote university-business technology transfer.
This innovative office building was designed by architect Lluís Nadal and is surrounded by a large landscaped area. It boasts a solid glass enclosure and open floors with natural lighting. This attractive and unique structure has been the backdrop for the set of many different advertising campaigns.
Beyond aesthetic aspects, its architectural configuration promotes synergies between work teams and exchanges between the worlds of business and academia. It offers modular offices (between 50 and 230 m2) and multiple services, parking, warehouses, a café and an auditorium (for more than 100 people).
Its facilities are currently used by technology companies, and research and development departments. Its success led to CZFB and UPC developing another building for the same purpose a few years later, Nexus II.
