Destined from the beginning to commercial use for stores, offices and offices. It is one of the first commercial and office buildings in Madrid directly related to North American architecture.
Located on Calle Mayor 4 this is one of the most magnificent secrets of this city, precisely because it is in a crowded situation like few, very few meters from the Puerta del Sol, without the random pedestrians being aware of their close existence.
Built in 1919 drinking the airs of the Chicago School, its responsible is Antonio Palacios, was also responsible for the Palacio de Cibeles or the Circulo de Bellas Artes.
A little of history
The intention of the project was not to stand out from the new buildings of the Puerta de Sol after its expansion and the construction of its peripheral hotels. The building occupies a plot of 224 square meters that, on the side of the Puerta del Sol, adjoins the building that houses the La Mallorquina bakery and, on the other hand, the Arenal building, which would occupy the site of the former Palacio de the Counts of Oñate. Casa Palazuelo is one of the first commercial and office buildings in Madrid. Palacios, after the design and construction of this building, was commissioned to build Casa Matesanz on Gran Vía, another commercial building. The Matesanz House was declared in 1997 as an Asset of Cultural Interest as a Monument.
