Architect spends 45 years to convert World War One cement factory into his home

Over the decades Bofill and his team added lush vegetation and turned it from an industrial shell into a unique work of art – La Fabrica.

Bofill said: “Seduced by the contradictions and the ambiguity of the place, we quickly decided to retain the factory, and modifying its original brutality, sculpt it like a work of art.

“Presently I live and work here better than anywhere else. It is for me the only place where I can concentrate and associate ideas in the most abstract manner.”
