    We are an Architectural design bureau established in Barcelona & Porto

About Us

We believe that people are at the heart of every design, and bringing a great design to our clients and their communities is our ultimate goal. Our design laboratory is inspired by developing innovative ideas that are generated from the positive relationships with our clients and partners.
We also endeavour to ensure the experience of working with us is satisfying and memorable, because architecture has the possibility to enliven the human experience, and we are committed to achieving this potential.

Our Vision

We are MC Designlab. We create places that enhance the human experience.


We have the education, training, experience, and drive to guide those developing buildings through the entire design & construction process.


We believe everyone deserves to live & work in healthy buildings that are more comfortable, efficient and better places to live. All of our projects use sustainable materials, systems and practices.

Turn-key solutions

We provide a unique service, delivering bespoke turn-key solutions that fit our client's individual requirements.


We run a multi-disciplinary, international design firm that has spread projects in 15 countries.

Smart Tech

Smart materials and tech are constantly emerging and evolving. Working with them breaks the hegemony of conventional building materials and systems, allowing many more to enter in our designs.


We provide standard and custom warranties from projects to construction services.

Meet the Team

After years collaborating together in different and engaging architectural projects, our professional paths naturally joined together giving birth to the concept of

MC Designlab.
