Landmark
The Edificio Grassy is a building located at 1st Gran Vía in Madrid, Spain.ArchitectureSituated just off Calle de Alcalá, at the very beginning of Gran Vía, the Edificio Grassy was built between 1916 and 1917. It was constructed on a triangular piece of land, in the same way as the Edificio Metrópolis next to it. Moreover, its architect Eladio Laredo aimed to achieve an architectural similarity between both of them. This trend was respected to a certain extent along Gran Vía.It comprises two independent buildings, which are joined together by the hall and the patio. Eclectic in its architecture, it boasts a rotunda topped by two superimposed belvederes of Renaissance influence.NowadaysSince 1952 it hosts the upscale Grassy Jeweler's. Its basement also houses a museum of ancient clocks, with remarkable French, German and English items which span from the 16th to the 19th century, conforming an interesting private collection.The facade of the building is well known for its illuminated advertisements about different brands of watches. For the last decades Jaeger-LeCoultre, Audemars Piguet, Piaget and Baume et Mercier have enjoyed a preeminent position, easily distinguishable at the entrance of Gran Vía. Currently the sought-after location is occupied by a Rolex sign.

  • The Grassy building is only iconic by host Piaget jewelry in their premises and their location. If not at the start of the Gran Vía wouldn't be as famous or as photographed. Frankly for me there is nothing in particular

  • Lovely building, which houses a beautiful jewelry watches, ideal to take some notes of painting. Trim the Gran Via.

  • In my opinion, the Grand street Via can or hate for its excessive benefits and some chuzherodnost', or give credit to the remarkable architecture of the beginning of the 20th century. I support the second option. Because of all these houses-Metropolis, Telefonica, Grassy deserve very close attention. Recommend. Indeed, the unusual façade Grassy recalls openwork tower with each other gazebos-bel'vederami.
