Bofill was first considered by the cement factory in 1973. He immediately saw all the potential that the ruin had and would take action. He decided to buy it, along with his team.
The building is located in Barcelona. Nowadays Bofill lives here and he also works from “La Fábrica” as the plant is called. The team Bofill studio is located in one of the silos. It is designed in the sign of minimalism, there are many open spaces and high ceilings. The result is brilliant.
