Transformation of an Old Cement factory into a Beautiful Characteristic Home

Architect Ricardo Bofill came across an old cement factory that was built in 1973 and immediately saw huge potential.  He came up with the name La fábrica and years later, the building has been fully renovated into the most impressive home with character at every turn.

Located outside of Barcelona, Spain, the timeworn cement factory had long shut its doors when Bofill and his group bought the building.  After several years of renovation and reconstruction on several areas, the inspired designer created a lush peripheral area full of beautiful plants, trees and other stunning botanicals.  Inside, he utilized modern elements to create a distinct contemporary feel.

La Fabrica continues to thrive to this day.  Demonstrating that the future is ever-changing, constantly evolving.  This spectacular structure illustrates the inspired creativity of the truly great mind of Ricardo Bofill.
