Campus UAB Bellaterra
Project and Management
Client: CSIC

The Economic Analysis Institute building was built between 1987 and 1988. It’s located in the campus of the Univesitat Autònoma de Barcelona and had a surface of 1.000 m2.

The architects had made an ampliation, building a new volume of two floors, and adding around 1000 m2 more. The new building is different, in a formal aspect, from the original, looking for the uniformity of the colours in facade and the armony in the volumes. It’s a building composed by a ground floor and a fist floors composed by two parts with a cental garden in between. This garden connects the visuals with the central space of the original building.

Apart, the original building is refurbished. The internal arrangement, the facades, the skylight are renoved, also all the instalations, adapting the function of the building to the present necessities.
