Tudor Architecture in non Anglo-Saxon Countries


I will star with some examples in Bogotá-Colombia, where Tudor style (neo) was one of the predominant styles in the 30s.

All these examples are mainly from a small neighborhood named La Merced. Most have lost the front gardens to road-expansion.
The biggest quantity of houses in that style can be found in Teusaquillo and Quinta Camacho.

Great new thread! What's the back story behind Tudor architecture in Colombia? The country didn't have much British colonial influence that I know of.

The actual direct influence was little (or none). However in the last half of the nineteenth century and beginnings of the twentieth it was not uncommon for wealthy families to send their sons to study in England.

I would say that a new taste for english countryside architecture started to be acquired and considering the typical climate of Bogotá (which is never hot and mostly cool and rainy), people started to adopt that style.

If you source your photos you will never be annoyed, I promise! The reason were so nit picky about it in Int'l Forums is because they are the most read by people outside SSC (remember these forums are visible by all on the internet and are on the front page). In the past there have been problems when people find their photos on SSC that have been posted without crediting them.

Very interesting, the climate of Bogota is indeed more maritime almost.

I'm not really sure what you understand for "maritime". By car we are at least 16 hours away from the closest coast, at 8000 feet over the level of the sea...

Also, locating it on a map you could say "tropical", but we know that there are even tropical climates with perpetual snow...

We don't have seasons (as we are close to the ecuator), but because of the altitud our maximum temperature is 25 degrees centigrade (as an exception), and during the night it can drop to minus 1. However the average is between 8 degrees and 18 degrees (in the same day), being the sky normallly overcast.

Because of the altitud and the rain the vegetation adquires a deep green color, similar to what you can see in the english countryside, but closer to the scottish one, even if there is nothing similar between the two countries (just the color and the sky).

I mean, it's kind of similar to the maritime climate of the British Isles. Just let variation in seasons
