The Cement Factory by Richard Bofill

Barbie loves seeing old structures repurposed... and loves to hear a good story about the process. Here's a lovely structure with some historical merit. 

The Cement Factory by Richard Bofill

In 1973, Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill purchased a WWI-era cement factory near Barcelona. He saw the potential in the space and began repurposing & renovating it to make it his home. After deconstruction of the space, his team began refurbishing the interior as a living space and transforming the exterior from vegetation to lush greenery. Each interior room has its own unique purpose and no two are the same. In addition there are many spaces for relaxation located on the exterior and interior. Despite his work, the Factory still remains a work in progress. 

Would you love to live in this factory?

Barbie would!
Kisses, m.
