Architecture > Contemporize “economical house,” La Ventilla, Tetuán After years living and working in our office, in the neighbourhood of Tetuán, Madrid, in the co-working space Studio Banana, we had the opportunity to work on a project in the area through a private client. We knew the neighbourhood perfectly: its character, the calm atmosphere, centrality, presence of art workshops, etc. Despite changes in recent years, the character of the neighbourhood remains for its residents. Tetuán has been impacted by many of the changes that other cities have in recent years such as: - Immigration - Urban progress - Gentrification or “gentrification” - Urban Palimpsests - Deshumanization public structures - Aging Population Tetuán is a district with a lot of architectural contrast. Between 1917 and 1926 this area was known for the “economical house.” These homes there are still in the memory in the neighbourhood. Our neighbours Dori and her husband, Mary and Manolo, etc. have taught us to enjoy the experiences and traditions that remain in the neighborhood.
