When it was discovered in 1973 by Ricardo Bofill this Cement factory was made up of 30 silos, underground galleries and huge engine rooms which made it perfect for a restoration project. After it was acquired by Ricardo it was converted into his personal mansion and architectural office. The old yard has been converted into a beautiful blossoming botanical garden. Looks amazing!

In order not to lock in structural differentials this connection was scheduled in the early morning when the steel in the two towers cooled to the same temperature. This was extremely difficult to achieve as the building itself is in seismic zone.

Designed in symmetrical octagonal pattern in the early 20th century, Eixample is one of the most unique looking districts of Spain. This amazing symmetrical design provides the town with wide streets, rounded corners and lush vegetation nearly in every part of the city. The lack of tall buildings is also a contributing factor to this beautiful sunny district.
