Art is out on the street this spring

By | 16 April, 2015 | 0 comments

Madrid Street Art Project

With the warm spring temperatures and the sun making regular appearances, everyone wants to get out on the street and plans multiply themselves, whether they are cultural, leisure, drinks on a terrace… any excuse is a good one so you can get some sun in after a long winter. Because days are longer, you can now enjoy a late afternoon on a nice terrace having a cool drink and, if your surroundings change and become pure art, all the better.

That is precisely what will happen on the streets of the legendary district of Lavapiés because from the 7th until the 21st of May, most of them will become an artistic intervention. C.A.L.L.E. is the name of this colourful and creative festival that, for the second year running, lands on the facades, shop windows and exterior spaces of shops to turn them into a huge masterpiece of urban art.

Today, the marketing and communication activities of companies as well as the sales techniques have changed and adapted themselves to the current needs of mobility, product accessibility and profiles, both of the client and the teams that make up said companies. As part of the motivation activities that are developed in trainings, there is an increasing need to be in touch with teams to bring them closer to products, especially when we can see that they are decentralised from the office and spread around different locations.

For this, it’s very useful to carry out certain meetings or gatherings with your team, during which you can show the company’s numbers, its objectives, novelties and also listen to the best sales people in our company: the staff.

Madrid through the eyes of Luis Gutiérrez Soto

By | 31 January, 2015 | 0 comments

Edificio Callao

Luis Gutiérrez Soto (1900-1977) was one of the most prolific architects of his time and although his name might be unknown to many, without him Madrid would not have the urban landscape that it has now. Up to 650 architectural projects carry his signature, most of them in our city.

Of a rationalist style and belonging to the Generation of ‘25, many of his works are still intact today. Others, like the old building in Barajas Airport have been lost. Of the more than 20 buildings and projects of his that still remain in Madrid, we’ve chosen the most emblematic ones of each of his artistic phases.

The hundred faces of the Puerta del Sol

La Puerta del Sol hacia 1885

Since its creation, the Puerta del Sol has been subjected to numerous renovations, particularly in the last few decades. It is curious to observe how, with time, the same urban landscape and the same street outline can change so much in terms of aspect and main elements.

Ava Gardner en 1951

It was the year 1950. Ava Gardner arrived in our country for the first time for the filming of Pandora and the Flying Dutchman. The atmosphere that she came across in Madrid’s nightlife and the attractions of our culture stayed with the actress forever despite her short stay. Some say that what she really enjoyed was the absence of gossip journalists that would publish her crazy long nights of partying.

Theatres a stone’s throw away

Teatro Muñoz Seca, con el Hotel Liabeny al fondo

One of the advantages of the privileged location of our hotel by the Puerta del Sol is the proximity to a large number of theatres, both close to the Gran Vía and to the bohemian district of Las Letras.

The theatres in the city centre are gems in themselves, historical and architectonic gems. Most of them are from the late 19th or early 20th century and they offer unique spaces with the common denominator of chandeliers and red armchairs.
