Architect Turns Old Cement Factory Into His Home Named La Fábrica



When Ricardo Bofill stumbled upon a dilapidated cement factory in 1973, he immediately saw a world of possibilities. La fábrica was born, and almost 45 years later, the structure has been completely transformed into a spectacular and unique home.

La Fabrica

The factory, located just outside of Barcelona, was a WWI-era pollution machine that had closed down, and came with many repairs to be done when Ricardo Bofill and his team purchased it.

La fábrica is a work in progress to this day, to which Bofill likens his own life.

The exterior was laced with vegetation, and now overflows with lush greenery

“The Cement Factory is a place of work par excellence” Bofill writes on his official website

La Fabrica 5

Each room is designed with its own special purpose, and no 2 look quite alike.

The exterior is mostly covered by grass, but also eucalyptus, palm, and olive trees.

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