Corner House

Corner House

Late in 2004 the area known as Ålsta here in Tungelsta became a building site as a grassy field, only used by the occasional dog owner was transformed to a housing area with two storey apartments. That place is today known as Kryddgården. Since then a few new roads have been built, and a small forested area has been cut down to make room for many more houses. During this process (which I have documented), three old greenhouse businesses have closed, and new houses are being built everywhere. Every time I walk through here these days there's something new to photograph. Here you see a new road and a nice mix of different houses that fits in perfectly with the older buildings.

I really like this shot. You get a great feel for the street.

Looks like a very charming place to live. But I'm sad about the trees and the greenhouses.

I'm also a bit sad to see the greenhouses go. My great grandfather was one of the first gardeners in Tungelsta, he arrived here back in 1908 and luckily our greenhouses are still in business, although under a new owner. And if you look at an aerial photo Hilda you will see that we are surrounded by forests here.
