from Madrid Visitors & Convention Bureau:

''This architectural gem which was built in 1904 by the Palacios-Otamendi partnership of architects was never really intended for public use, so its renovation proved a considerable technical challenge. Thanks to major renovations carried out by Francisco Rodríguez Partearroyo over a six-year period and completed recently, the edifice now also serves as a state-of-the-art cultural venue, equipped with sustainable systems. During the refurbishment many existing areas were modernised, including the former Operations Courtyard (which once housed the postal, telegraph and telephone services), the third, fourth and fifth floors (now large exhibition halls) and the 70-metre tower, which offers 360º views over the city. New spaces were also added, like the Glass Gallery and the Auditorium, which seats 296 people and was specially designed for chamber music.''
