About the Nest city Lab
*We are an urban lab for sustainability and we experiment with everything that can lead us towards a more meaningful life.
*We are not just using a space to work, learn or play. We are also entering a community of practice that cares about the planet and all beings.
*The Nest city lab can facilitate a lifestyle that reduces our ecological footprint considerably on a daily basis and encourages us to have a positive impact on the world.
Our mission in Apocapoc BCN is to imagine, create, and offer sustainable spaces* that inspire its members to live a more sustainable and fulfilling life.
Our philosophy relies on the vision of free interconnected human beings, in a life long learning process, that reach their maximum potential through the practice of sustainable daily habits.
Our spaces aim to create paths that facilitate the hike towards this vision. We offer many paths* towards one shared vision and we encourage individual rhythms.
“The perfect space to create drops of creative ideas and innovative actions in a sea of changes. At Apocapoc BCN, we can take the time to put some meaning in daily choices and moves. See it as a productive playground, a cozy cocoon, a safe place to try, share, and make it happen.”
2013 BORN Our project starts in its physical expression in 2013 with our first space, an eco-friendly coworking in the Born, a charming neighborhood in the old center of Barcelona. APOCAPOC BCN was the first space renovated and managed with a sustainable focus in Barcelona. Apocapoc Born hosts 40 permanent members and a total community of 70 members.
During 4 years we’ve learned by trying, failing, and launching pilot projects that inspired us and others along the way.
2017 NEST The second phase of our project focuses on going one step further by sustainably renovating, with a LEED Platinum certification, an old foundry in the @22 Poblenou district of Barcelona. Apocapoc NEST aims to welcome up to 80 permanent members and a total community of 150 members in a space of 1500 m2 that conserves the industrial heritage and restores natural biodiversity. The space includes 400 m2 of permaculture space with an edible forest, an urban farm with aeroponic towers, a yoga and mindfulness space, a media center, a vegetarian industrial kitchen, a wellness space, and a coworking for craft entrepreneurs, startups, and small companies.
