Guess what this house used to be?

Any clue? It used to be a concrete factory in Barcelona. It is still in Barcelona, but now it is an amazing house. Architect Ricardo Bofill bought it in 1973 and performed one of the ultimate flips.

The house maintains some of the concrete equipment and juxtaposes hard industrial with natural materials. Two design elements things that I love.

Inspires me to just buy a historic "shell" and make it my own. When it comes time to buy of course... Which will be around 2050. Law school loans people.
