Cement Factory Turned Residential Home

Architect Ricardo Bofill bought an old, abandoned cement factory in Barcelona, Spain in 1973, and transformed it into a dream home that looks like a sort of enchanted, ivy-covered industrial fairytale castle from the outside, and inside is a contrasting modern spectacle of heavenly spaces. The mix of old and new is fascinating, as the structure and elements of the original factory are clearly present, integrated into a luxe, contemporary style, and it is also evocative of a cathedral and gives off a sense of antiquity.
