in the early 1970s, architect ricardo bofill bought an abandoned cement factory and transformed it into a working office and home.

the result is a bit of magic. the space is delicate in unexpected places; the color variation in an unearthed section of cement wall, a stairwell to nowhere, the line of chair.   there is a lovely contrast of finishes and textures; cement and sheer cotton, plants growing from stone, contrasts of raw and polished materials.  it is the kind of luxury that only seems to exist in these expansive spaces and out of thoughtful, restraint.
