The studio


Frade Arquitectos S.L. has carried out the complete refurbishment of the National Archaeological Museum of Spain and the Madrid History Museum.

In 1995 they received the National Award of Restoration and Conservation of Cultural Heritage for the Renovation of the Palace of Carlos V in the Museum of the Alhambra in Granada.

In 2016 the studio was in charge of the new rooms of the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art in Cuenca and the museography of the Málaga Museum.

They will soon start with the refurbishment of the Museum of the Real Colegiata de San Isidoro de León and the new Museum of the Real Maestranza de Caballeria de Ronda.
