This Guy Transformed An Abandoned Cement Factory Into A Home. Wait Till You See Inside

March 3, 2017

When architect Ricardo Bofill stumbled upon an abandoned cement factory in 1973, he saw enormous potential.

The factory, located in Catalonia, Spain, was built during World War I but it was still in decent shape.

"We found enormous silos, a tall smoke stack, four kilometres of underground tunnels, machine rooms in good shape," Bofill wrote on his website. "This was in 1973 and it was our first encounter with the Cement Factory."

Almost 45 years later, the structure has been completely transformed into a spectacular and unique home.

"Seduced by the contradictions and the ambiguity of the place, we quickly decided to retain the factory, and modifying its original brutality, sculpt it like a work of art."

"Presently I live and work here better than anywhere else. It is for me the only place where I can concentrate and associate ideas in the most abstract manner."
