Modernism in Madrid

If we are lucky, we may come across one of the few buildings that remain of the original Modernist Madrid. These homes take us back in time, transporting us to another world, another time and other people. Here time seems to have stood still, and the unique character of these buildings from a foregone era draws us in. In today's times when styles and fashions are fleeting, it is amazing to experience the sensation one gets from contemplating buildings more than a century old, and from the near miraculous endurance of a handful of old houses that seem intent on staying.

An example of Moorish Revival architecture, they were built between 1890-1892 as part of the first phase of single-family homes in the Neo-Mudéjar style, located in Calles Castelar, Roma and Cardenal Belluga, and are the project of Julián Marín.

After difficulties with the City Council, the legalization of the project was placed in the hands of the foreman, Mauricio Martínez Calonge, in 1894. He continued the project by building a second phase of homes in the Neo-Mudéjar style on these same streets between 1894 and 1901.

third phase of modernist homes was built in Calle Roma between 1905 and 1906, designed by Valentín Roca Carbonell.

Madrid Moderno (also called Colonia Madrid Moderno) was a neighbourhood in Madrid with Modernist style semi-detached houses built between 1890 and 1906.
