The OneOcean Port Vell Marina in Barcelona has extended and improved its facilities in order to provide service to the increased demand of cruising yachts. The project involved the construction of two buildings on the water and the landscape management of the quayside, and comprises One Ocean Club and The Gallery Building.

The aim was to achieve the integration of the new buildings and the public space within the singular environment, which is half-way between the industrial port and the old town of Barcelona.

The buildings are covered by a lattice, which has been specially designed for the project, providing protection against solar radiation, strong winds and the saline environment. The materials and colours seek to minimise the visual impact by gently integrating themselves within the environment and the boats.

The judges said:

'A new interpretation of marina design with a dramatic nautical air that captures the ephemeral magic required for a singular hospitality dining experience.'
