The concept of Bac de Roda is an antidote to the current consumer lifestyle. It comprises an energy efficient Office Centre featuring safe, healthy open spaces and a harmonious place to work. The project aims to become a trophy asset of Barcelona 22@District, an innovative and urban renewal zone of the city bringing the highest quality to the working environment.

Bac de Roda Office Center is a blend of Catalan cultural values, innovative technologies, and revolutionary architectural solutions, e.g.:


An artificial waterfall on the southern facade 

• The highest in Europe, the 40 m artificial solar-powered waterfall uses rainwater and purified water previously used by the tenants.It  imitates the dramatic Salt del Sallen - the highest and the most beautiful waterfall of Catalonia.

• The man-made forest in the middle of the urban jungles - 200 trees planted throughout the building both vertically and horizontally.

• The vertical wind energy generators in the shape of a traditional Catalan wind instrument, the nunut, produce a subtle pleasant sound, similar to the original acoustic vibrations of the instrument The rotating movement of the generators replicate the circular motion of the Sardana – a traditional Catalan dance.

- The principle of connecting and enforcing energy and people unification in a circle of the Sardana is also applied to the design of workspaces on open terraces of  the building.

• The solar shading system is designed in the form of a large number of triangles - a direct reference to Els Castellers, Barcelona Human Towers, and Falcons, Barcelona Human Buildings, unique protected by UNESCO Catalan traditions symbolizing the values of trust and union.

• Vertical slats on the facade refer to the tradition of national stick dance Festa Bastonera.


Office spaces 6th floor

• The interior of the main hall of the building is created in the form of a cave in a rock with a waterfall and a 7-meter statue of Bac de Roda with a living fire in the heart in whose honour this building is named.
