Plaza Norte 2, Madrid
Plaza Norte 2 shopping centre is one of the largest shopping malls in Madrid, located in San Sebastian de los Reyes, to the north of the city. The enchanting interior has the feel of an 18th century palace to it, with the exterior of the building being just as spectacular. It boasts Venetian-style lighting in the form of lamps and large chandeliers, marble floors, columns, staircases and balconies, as well as exquisite lapis lazuli obelisks. The effect is an intriguing mix of present-day modern technology combined with the gracious elegance of past eras. The aesthetic appeal made to the visitor's senses is equalled only by the clear intention to provide comfort, convenience and pleasure.
For couples in love, it's the perfect place to combine romance with the practicalities of life! Chapman Taylor, the centre's architects, won the prestigious 'Architect of the Year Award' at the 5th Central & Eastern European Real Estate Quality Awards held in 2008. This event is a showcase of talent in the real estate sector for Central and Eastern Europe, with La Cúpula de Madrid being a fine example of the innovative vision and sophisticated style of this architectural firm.
This shopping centre is affectionately known as La Cúpula de Madrid (Madrid's Dome) because of the spectacular 35-metre high dome located above the centre of the building.
