Nieto Sobejano arquitectos awarded 1st prize in the architectural competition for the Sorolla Museum in Madrid

06.09.2016

The Madrid architectural office of Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano will be renovating and expanding the house-museum of Joaquín Sorolla. The intervention on the old residence on Calle Martínez Campos seeks to address the building’s functional deficiencies while creating the necessary new spaces, such as a hall for temporary exhibitions, an auditorium, and a restoration workshop, besides a loading dock and storage for paintings. With this in mind, the museum has acquired properties adjacent to it, making for an additional 1,500 square meters.
