Description
The Ateneo de Madrid and Opengap invite to this ideas competition in search of proposals that renovate the Hall of the building located at number 21 Calle del Prado in Madrid.
Currently, this space represents only the access to the building’s entity. However, this space should not be only a prelude to access, such as today, but be a representative “welcome”, configured as an active presentation of the many activities held within the ATENEO.
The existence of a grand staircase, the power of vertical space and the other elements can be translated in multiple possibilities, but at the same time this space is very sensitive due to the patrimonial protection and other specifications, so this competition means a complex and exciting challenge.
Ateneo de Madrid and Opengap invite architects, designers, interior designers, students and other professionals concerned worldwide, to participate with imaginative and original proposals.
