Individual homes in Madrid (2)

colonia2-dibu

Again an eastern neighborhood, but in a more central location and subject to clear transformation dynamics
colonia2-antiguedad

Building year is not that homogeneous: there is a number of buildings dating from 1926, others were built just following the 1936-1939 civil war, and there are even some that have less than a decade. Visiting the area it is clear that there are many recent middle range interventions (the old suburb has become central, so it is more attractive)
colonia2-superficie

Lot area is more homogeneous, taking into acount the irregular site.
colonia2-superfvivienda

Most of the lots still have dwellings, but a bunch have none. There is a set of private kindergarten, a restaurant and even a notary’s office.
colonia2-superfaparcIn 1926 a covered garage was an uncommon idea, but today there are many (the rest usually park their car on their gardens…)
