A modern and bright house in the district of innovation in Barcelona

Our house is located in the innovation district of Barcelona known as 22@. In the past, it was full of factories.During these last years, the district has been involved in a deep transformation to become the great district that it is now: a strategic concentration of the most innovative companies, research and technology, transfer centres education centres, parks, equipment, housing and universities. The coexistence of these facilities with the neightborhood shooping life,has made the 22@ to be a rich productive neighbourhood that improves the quality of life of the citizens who live there.

Our house was built in 2012, following an energy efficiency criterion ( by the way it was rewarded for this reason). Our apartment, has 65 m2. There are three bedrooms, one bathroom and a living room with kitchen all in one environment . The house is located on the fifth floor of the building. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, washing machine and a dryer . We almost don't use the dryer because we prefer to hang out the wet clothes to be dried under the sun. There is also the possibility of hanging clothes on top of the building into a community space prepared for such purposes.

Our house is located 200 meters from the bus stop that takes you to the city centre and 600 meters from the metro ( yellow line, stop Llacuna). This line connects our house directly to three of the most attractive areas in the city that are on Passeig de Gracia ( with La Pedrera, Casa Batlló, the path of the Catalan Modernism, art, shops, restaurants etc..., Gràcia, very interesting district where you can find the famous Parc Güell from Gaudí and finally the beaches and the Olimpic Port. Also, it connects easily with the area of the Sagrada Familia and Camp Nou. With public transport you can easily and quickly commute around the city from our house.I want to point out that Barcelona is one of the most accessible cities in the world. There are elevators in almost all metro stations, spaces reserved for trolleys and wheelchairs in all buses.

I want to enphatize that on the ground floor of our building there are two nice cafeterias and specially healthy for breakfast, lunch and snack.The first ones called Sopa, that means Soup, which has delicious and vegetarian daily menus which are not expensive at all. It also offers the possibility to take the food away.The other cafeteria is called Superfood, and it makes some of the best coffees in the city.
