Madrid Moderno

Updated: Aug 6


Built between the years 1890-1906 by architect Julián Marín (also worth checking out his beautiful Casa de las Bolas on calle Alcala 145), Madrid Moderno was intended to house middle class families in the ever-growing suburbs of Spain's capital. Over a 100 of these cute houses, with their distinctive steel pillars holding up windowed turrets, were built. Unfortunately very few of the original houses are left standing (why weren't they slapped with a preservation order?!). Those remaining can be viewed near metro station Ventas, along the streets of Roma and Castelar.


Construidos entre los años 1890-1906 por el arquitecto Julián Marín (cuyo obra La Casa de las Bola en la calle Alcalá 145 merece la pena ver), Madrid Moderno pretendió ser una colonia para gente de la clase media en la capital de España. Más que 100 de estos hotelitos eran construidos, con sus miradores apoyados por columnas de hierro. Desafortunadamente solo unos pocos quedan (no entiendo porqué no les daban una orden de preservación). Los que quedan se pueden ver al lado de la estación de metro de Ventas, en las calles de Roma y Castelar.
