In 2018, architect Sergio Baragaño together with ArcelorMittal I+D Asturias-based research centres launched a project aiming to combine technology and habitat into a “living-lab” hotel room, designed by Baragaño based on his architectural proposal for the enlargement of the Hotel Palacio Ferrera in Avilés. This project is the extension of “bhome”, the modular construction prototype both partners had already developed back in 2016.
In 2019, a group of highly-innovative & market-leading companies founded an Innovation Consortium. Their goal was to bring the “living-lab” on and to develop and demonstrate technologies for the purpose of generating the room of the future: industrially manufactured, smart, sustainable, adaptable and healthful.
In 2020, Sergio Baragaño launched the start-up ROOM2030. The company’s value proposition is to Design, Manufacture and Commercialize solutions based on the prototype and to bring in the necessary lifeblood so to generate healthy and sustainable habitats that prompt the humanization of technolog
The Room2030 R&D Consortium was created with the aim of developing the Room of the Future, a new concept of habitat that implements the latest technology innovations from the partners.
The presentation ceremony of the ROOM2030 Consortium took place in December 2019 at the Cosentino City in Madrid, with the participation of Raúl Blanco, Secretary of State for Industry, who was accompanied by the members of the consortium.
Since 2021, ROOM2030 startup replaces [baragaño] as consortium partner.
Room2030 Living Lab is our first prototype, presented Jan 2020 in Avilés, Asturias.
In the Living Lab we integrate & test different technologies from the Room2030 Consortium partners
48m2, bedroom + bathroom + livingroom + porch
Includes innovations such as:
→ Smart, active and sustainable materials
→ Health technologies
→ Environmental and energy efficiency
→ IOT network
→ Modular construction and 3D solutions
Sergio Baragaño & bhome
Sergio Baragaño, director of studio [baragaño], and CEO and Founder of ROOM2030, has more than 10 years of unique experience in the industrialized construction sector. He is one of the references at national level in terms of modular buildings executed. Since 2015, he has become an external consultant on Industrialization for ArcelorMittal R&D with whom he participated in the relevant project “CETICA, industrialized city” with a budget of € 24M.
Bhome is a modular construction system in steel for homes and offices, flexible and compact. Founded by Baragaño and with support from different partners like ArcelorMittal, it has many modular and award-winning projects in its portfolio, and it was the seed for the Room2030 project.
