Old Concrete Factory Converted to Modern Castle Home









25 years ago, a Spanish architect, namely Ricardo Bofill, came across a deteriorating old cement factory. The site was home to rotting silos, vast and varied spaces, and unused building equipment. Where most people would see ruin, Ricardo saw potential.
Fast forward a quarter of a century, and the results of his ongoing renovation project are beyond remarkable. The complex is now home to its Gothic-influenced architect Ricardo Bofill, acting as his main residence, as well as numerous vast offices, archives, design labs and various outside patios, decks, gardens and paths. All part of an ever-evolving master plan.
