The cultural association Nau Bostik celebrates its 5th anniversary with a bold proposal for its future.
As part of its celebratory events the Nau Bostik association asked Borgos Pieper to develop a masterplan for its retention and refurbishment in the face of continued development pressure in the in the quarter brought on by the creation of the new high speed rail station in the quarter. As the last factory still standing in the Sagrera district, the 6.000m2 ensemble of buildings contains multiple event, exhibition, workshop and co-working spaces that are offered to creative and social enterprises and groups from the district and greater Barcelona.
The proposal developed by Borgos Pieper as part of the studios pro-bono work integrates the historic factory within the adjacent new residential buildings to the East and new school buildings to the West with a Green Axis of open spaces, green roofs and gardens while adding ten artist residences that ensure a 24hr life and green amenity for community on the site. The phased refurbishment plan will repair deteriorated structure and roofing materials as well as improve thermal and acoustic performance for each of the buildings. It will go to public consultation in Spring 2020.
