Abandoned old cement factory turned into incredible home in Barcelona


The Cement Factory was discovered in 1973 in Barcelona by architect Ricardo Bofill, it was abandoned and partially in ruins. I had over 30 silos, underground galleries and huge engine rooms; Ricardo bought it and began renovation works.

The Cement Factory would be used as architectural offices, archives, a model laboratory, and exhibition space, an apartment for him, as well as guest rooms and gardens.

Not every part of the structure was kept in order to expose previously concealed structures. The landscape architecture was defined by planting various plants such as eucalyptus, palms, olive trees and cypresses; The renovation works lasted nearly two years.

When you walk in seems a magical place, each room changing in purpose, size, shape and character.

“To be an architect means to understand space, to understand space organized by man, to decipher the spontaneous movements and behavior of people, and to detect the needs of change that they might unconsciously express. It is essential to track down these issues if we want to contribute with our personal work to the history of architecture.” ( Ricardo Bofill )
