Back in 1973, architect Ricardo Bofill discovered a dilapidated cement factory outside Barcelona. And after nearly 45 years of work, he has completely transformed the home into an industrial-chic wonderland, dubbed La fábrica.

One of Bofill’s first moves was to return the polluted factory to nature, covering the exterior of the property with vegetation. Inside the home is sleek, modern and expansive. Check out the photos via Bored Panda below.
