As the capital of the Mediterranean, Barcelona is one of Europe’s most dynamic destinations for business and leisure. The attractive climate, vibrant fashion industry and rich culture, as well as world famous restaurants, add to the appeal of this cosmopolitan destination. Factoring in outstanding architecture and a coastal setting, it’s clear why Barcelona is one of the most desirable cities in the world.
Set between the mountains and the sea, Passeig de Gràcia forms the heart of the city, where international businesses, world-famous fashion houses and exceptional restaurants lie side by side. Architectural masterpieces, including Gaudí’s Casa Batlló and Casa Milà, and Cadafalch’s Casa Amatller, bring history and culture to this outstanding avenue, the city’s most coveted address.
Anything created by human beings is already in the great book of nature — Antoni Gaudí, Architect
The principal architect of Mandarin Oriental Residences, Carlos Ferrater has helped shape Barcelona into the cosmopolitan city it is today. Born and raised in Barcelona, Ferrater’s innate understanding of the city and his ability to create buildings that capture the essence of their environment made his practice, OAB, a globally recognised signature and the perfect choice to design the Mandarin Oriental Residences, Barcelona.
Interior designers of the residences, Nathan Hutchins and Inge Moore are co-founders of London-based Muza Lab, a practice specialising in one-of-a-kind hospitality projects around the world. Formerly directors of Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) in London, together they have cultivated a portfolio that includes luxury hotels, homes, spas, restaurants and members’ clubs as well as trains, yachts and riverboats.
Inspired by the building’s location and its unique connection with Barcelona, they have created an interior concept that revolves around framing the light and the views. Pure and refined, exquisite spaces help establish The Residences as some of the finest private homes in the world.
Mandarin Oriental Residences, Barcelona offers an extraordinary lifestyle experience. Owners will enjoy use of the exclusive Lounge and Garden Level, comprised of fitness, wellness and business facilities, as well as a rooftop garden and swimming pool.

Outstanding service is at the heart of the Mandarin Oriental experience and the 24-hour team are experts in personally knowing the residents’ preferences and expectations.
