Architect Gives Life Back To An Old Cement Factory By Transforming It Into An Outstanding Modern Home

Architect Gives Life Back To An Old Cement Factory By Transforming It Into An Outstanding Modern Home

by Ayoub Mask

Taking risks and seeing potential in things normal people wouldn't even take a second glance at is what makes artists so unique and superior to the rest of the population. After Ricardo Bofill, a brilliant architect discovered a dilapidated cement factory back in 1973 something just clicked in his brain and he immediately was able to picture and predict all the great improvements he will be capable of adding to the place, and he eventually turned it into a fine piece of art.


He kept the main structure mostly intact, then proceeded to bring his vision to life. Although, La fábrica's renovation is still a work in progress mainly due to the constant changes in Bofill's vision, but we must always remember that all good things come slow and Ricardo seems like a very patient man.(h/t)

“I have the impression of living… in a closed universe which protects me from the outside and everyday life” Bofill writes.

“Life goes on here in a continuous sequence, with very little difference between work and leisure”.

You will find multiple relaxion dedicated spots like this all over the property.

And of course, every artist needs a work space

This look gives the property a “mysterious aspect of romantic ruin that makes it unique and unrepeatable”.

“The kitchen-dining room located in the ground floor is the meeting point for the family”.

La fábrica will always be a work in progress, which is one of the many reasons why it's so unique and beautiful.
