Casa Bonay is set to open in Barcelona this summer as a 67-room boutique hotel restored from a 19th-century mansion.

The stunning building was originally built in 1869 and has now been carefully restored by Casa Bonay founder Inés Miro-Sans in partnership with Brooklyn-based design firm Studio Tack. Reinterpreting traditional Mediterranean architecture and design, the hotel will include mosaic floors throughout, large sunlight-flooded corridors and original solariums. Bedrooms are furnished with the contemporary pieces from local designers and custom textiles.

Miro-Sans has also brought in help from friends such as fashion designers, artisan coffee roasters, experimental head chefs, publishers and talented craftspeople to create a new, collective form of hospitality in the city. They will sit amongst the building's bars, restaurants, cafes and stores to form a creative hub in the city's cosmopolitan El Born area.

Also, if you missed it first time, Japanese architect Tadao Ando has offered a glimpse into his insane self-built studio.
