Hotel Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona

On Barcelona’s Passeig de Gràcia, in a building previously occupied by a bank of which only the façade has been conserved, is the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Barcelona, an establishment belonging to the hotel chain of the same name.

 

The new build comprises a body that rises over eight floors, facing Passeig de Gràcia, and a semi-underground, four-storey oblong body that penetrates around fifty metres into the plot, The tall, approximately rectangular body is completely dominated by the presence of a central atrium of large dimensions that operates as a light well, a sculptural space and a centre of reference. Around it are organised the corridors, foyers and rooms on the upper floors. On the ground floor is the entrance hall, accessed via a ramp through the atrium.

The oblong body contains a large double-height central space with the “Blanc” restaurant and, on its sides, in as many side mezzanines, the gastronomic restaurant “Moments” and the “Banker’s Bar”. Below, in the basement, is the spa with the gym and indoor swimming pool. Above it, the “Mimosa Garden”, an impressive open-air terrace inside the block courtyard.

Patricia Urquiola is the author of the art-deco-style interior design of this hotel, which opened in the year 2009. In general lines, the interior boasts an excellent level, with a precise design and well-resolved, well-finished spaces.

Although the establishment has had to follow the guidelines set by the hotel group to which it belongs in aspects relating to graphic communications, the Mandarin Hotel has succeeded in bringing its own personality to the graphic communications mediums. This personalisation becomes particularly evident in its restaurant services, which are very much in keeping with the city of Barcelona.
