Ricard Bofill is an architect who found an old crumbling cement factory back in the 1970s. Being an architect, he was able to immediately see a vision for the old place. Called La Fabrica, the place has been completely transformed.
Located just outside Barcelona, Spain, the factory was shut down decades ago. It’s no a totally modern place to live and work.
Bofill calls the place a work in progress and he continues to make upgrades and changes.

Crumbling Factory

When Bofill saw this factory, he bought it right away and began the transformation. That included adding greenery inside and out.

Lots of Green

Bofill started planting immediately after buying the factory. Now much of the interior and exterior are covered in plants.

Unique Rooms

Bofill says that each room is different and has it’s own personality. No two rooms look like each other, which is quite a feat in such a large place.

Closed Universe

Bofill says, “I have the impression of living… in a closed universe which protects me from the outside and everyday life.” Talk about a personal sanctuary.

Work and Play

He goes on to say, “Life goes on here in a continuous sequence, with very little difference between work and leisure.” That sounds like anyone’s dream home.

Relaxation Haven

Bofill’s creation is packed with little pockets of relaxation. There are lounging areas both inside and outside the home.

Grass and Trees

The exterior of the home is mostly covered in grass, but there are some trees there too. You can see palm, eucalyptus and olive trees throughout the outside.

Like a Castle

Bofill likes to compare the outside of the home to a romantic ruin. With all the greenery, it sort of looks like an abandoned castle.
