KNEM Offices, BEST NON-RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE ACTION

The b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos architectural practice and the developer Diagonal 477 with the collaboration of Urban Input have won the ASPRIMA-SIMA 2021 Awards in the Best Non-Residential Real Estate category, which were presented at the Madrid Real Estate Exhibition (SIMA) 2021.

These awards, a benchmark for the recognition of the best actions in the country’s real estate sector, thus rewarded the KNEM office project as the best candidacy in one of its main categories.

The award is given by a jury made up of architects, developers and different professionals from the real estate sector. The project has been designed on the historic building of the former jute spinning mill known as El Cánem. The façade of the existing building on Doctor Trueta street, included in the Architectural Heritage Protection Plan, has been preserved.

The façades of the KNEM office project are characterised by preserving the industrial architectural lines of El Poblenou Barcelona, respecting their origin, aesthetics and materiality, maintaining the balance between the new and the old.
