Conde Duque’s four exhibition rooms are situated around the South Terrace (lower floor and basement). They can be used independently or as interconnected spaces. During refurbishment, the exhibition space was one of the areas that was most significantly altered; before the renovations in 2005 Conde Duque had 3,012 m² of exhibition space, whereas it currently boasts 5,929 m². All of the rooms on the lower floor can also be opened out onto the South Terrace to further expand their exhibition spaces.
The Conde Duque Auditorium has undergone a complete reformation with the aim of creating a space that is modern and versatile. It is a place dedicated to music, which is intended to be both a lively space and a musical reference point in Madrid. The refurbishment has significantly improved the auditorium’s technical, functional and formal characteristics. Total area of 1,301.58 m² and 252 seat capacity (of which, two are for spectators using wheel chairs and two for their companions). There is also additional capacity for 70 people in the choir seats, which are unnumbered benches.
Conde Duque houses a performance space that is characterised by its versatility and technical equipment, making it ideal for both theatre and dance performances. With a floor space of 2,093m², it offers a perfect area for creativity from an open perspective to all performance disciplines. It is especially apt for the world of dance, offering a great opportunity to Madrid’s dance companies to carry on developing the city’s dance scene. 251 seat capacity (of which, two are for spectators using wheel chairs and two for their companions).
The Events Room
The Events Room is characterised by its versatility and is located above the main foyer, from which it has direct access. It can hold 287 seat capacity (of which, two are for spectators using wheel chairs and two for their companions) and functions in support of the centre’s entire programme.
Conde Duque has two large rehearsal rooms, one for theatre rehearsal and one for dance. Although they complement the theatre, they have been designed in such a way that they can be used independently, with separate access and dressing rooms. Both rehearsal rooms are located in the southern side of the South Terrace, on the first floor.
