The Villa Magna Hotel was the venue last Thursday for the eleventh edition of the PORCELANOSA Grupo Architecture and Interior Design Awards. Located in the Paseo de la Castellana, right in the capital’s nerve centre, this five-star hotel can be found along the Golden mile in Madrid. This is about Classical sophistication being combined with contemporary elegance. The Palacio de Anglada, a private Moorish-themed residence, in which Madrid’s high aristocracy would meet, was many years ago, located in the very same place as the hotel.
Innovation, architecture and talent
