LA FABRICA

I actually came across this project a few years ago but was recently reminded of it. In 1973 Architect Ricardo Bofill came across an abandoned Cement Factory on the outskirts of Barcelona and, over the next 40 plus years set about converting it into a magical constantly evolving home. It's like an episode of Grand Designs (a show you should watch if you haven't heard of it) on steroids!

Check out this short Nowness documentary on him and his amazing home - you can click on the image to see more photos of this stunning conversion...
