Individual homes in Madrid (3)


What once was an area created under the low cost homes act has become, just north of the posh core of Madrid, an exclusive zone.

Altough it is a pre-civil war development, there are almost no homes from the original period, as many have been demolished to build new ones or refurbished beyond recognition.

Variations in size between lots do depend often more on a series of rearrangements between neighboring properties.

In many cases homes have dissapeared (0 sq m of housing built area on the above image), as there are clinics, offices or restaurants. Nevertheless, housing is still the main use.
