Founded over 30 years ago, Urbidermis are an ‘editing’ company of urban furniture and lighting, housed in their iconic head office in the Parc de Belloch, (Barcelona, Spain). In 1992, Urbidermis worked with key stakeholders of the Olympic Games to revamp the city’s urban landscape and transform it into a world-wide benchmark of urban design. They now use the expertise gained, to improve public and private outdoor spaces through-out the world.
Parc de Belloch – The Knowledge Park
Spanning more than 140 hectares, their head office, ‘Parc de Belloch’ is located in La Roca, 18 miles north of Barcelona. The acquisition of estate in 2003 prompted their parent company ‘Intramundrana’ to start it tree nursery, whose research activities investigate urban deforestation and now runs under the name of ‘Belloch Forestal’. Its main purpose is to improve the environmental quality of metropolis’ revitalise the fields around the offices and teach Urbidermis how to design with nature in mind. That is how they sow the seed of responsibility for the future. They believe in the enormous value that nature can bring to social spaces, where trees, shrubs, plants and agricultural crops may once again take a prominent spot within human society.
