OneOcean Port Vell, Barcelona ( has been recognised as the winner of the popular choice vote in the ‘Best Marina & Port’ category of the fourth annual Architizer A + Awards ( Organised by one of the largest communities of architects globally, these prestigious awards pay tribute to the creative minds behind innovative structures, celebrating the year’s most acclaimed architecture and championing the impact on everyday life.

The two over-water buildings and 16,000 m2 of landscaped docks which form the Marina are integrated into their landscape, set between the industrial port and old town of Barcelona.

Paul Cook, General Manager, OneOcean Port Vell, said: “We are honoured to have been named a winner in the renowned Architizer A+ Awards. Our recognition by the people as an outstanding architectural project on this global scale is testament to the marina’s sensitivity and understanding of its environment. Following the multi-million pound transformation completed in 2014, this award is the culmination of all our team’s hard work to ensure we have a world class marina which reflects the vibrancy of modern day Barcelona. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us.”

The Architizer A + Award is the second design award to be received by OneOcean Port Vell within the last 6 months. In December 2015 OneOcean Port Vell won the ‘Global Project’ award at the FX Interior Design Awards 2015.
