The new building in Madrid has over 6,700 square meters and will bring together, in 2019, Sonae’s various businesses, currently spread around the city.
Sonae has a new address in Madrid, which will be its first headquarters in Spain, to shelter over 400 employees in early 2019. The Iconic Building was carefully chosen for its privileged location, with great accesses and pleasant spaces both inside and outside, to offer the best comfort conditions to its employees.
Being Sonae’s main international market, the creation of a unique office in Spain reinforces the group’s positioning in this country, providing better conditions for the current teams and improving the attractiveness when recruiting future employees, to maintain the commitment to growth in this country.
The building, erected in 2008, is the number 21 on Rua Ramirez de Arellano, in the prestigious Arturo Soria borough, close to other multinational companies. The building belongs to the HISPANIA real estate group and was designed by Rafael de La-Hoz Castanys, Spanish architect acknowledged for his innovative and sustainable works.
Sustainable architecture at the service of a collaborative strategy

Besides the important architectural value, the building responds to Sonae’s commitment to sustainability, as it is BREAMM certified. This seal is a guarantee that the building’s performance has a reduced environmental impact, with low CO2 emission, at the same time as it offers more comfort and well-being to the employees, through a control of the air quality and the lighting levels, and it provides a variety of common spaces, both inside and outside.
