The Stock Exchange Palace building: The symbolic scenario at the 10th PORCELANOSA Awards
Monday March 20th, 2017 · PORCELANOSA Grupo
This year, the Architecture and Interior Design PORCELANOSA Grupo Awards ceremony has changed the setting. This time, the 10th edition of the awards ceremony takes place in the symbolic Stock Exchange Palace buiding in Madrid, a neoclassical-styled historical building which dates back to 1831.
Nevertheless, it was not until 1893 when Queen Maria Cristina opened this charismatic building, with the original design by the architect Enrique Repullés, in collaboration with the sculptor Francisco Molinelli and the painter Luis Taberner. Through its renaissance style and the symbolism of its decoration, the palace represents what the building was aimed at, as well as the tasks carried out inside it, as the official site of the stock market institution; all of this with great historical charm and a classical feel. The building is in line with other buildings of major importance in Madrid, such as the Bank of Spain, the National Library, the Museum of Modern Art or the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language building. It is an historical space where corporate celebrations and important institutional events take place.
This is how the Stock Exchange Palace is today
The Stock Exchange Palace, located in the very centre of Madrid, nowadays offers companies and institutions the chance of enhancing their corporate events in a unique atmosphere. The building, of great economical-artistic interest continues to appeal to the curiosity of all those firms that, like the PORCELANOSA Grupo, want to opt for the best setting for their business events.
The Stock Exchange Palace owns symbolical spaces such as the Trading Floor, the main lounge of the Stock Exchange building and heart of the stock exchange market; The Hall of Silent Footsteps and the Trading Hall. Additionally, it also has other representative rooms, which are equipped with innovative audio-visual technology, which enables the coverage of any kind of events.
