Cement Factory Turned Mansion

Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill has made this Barcelona cement factory into a luxurious home, art studio and workspace.  With 33,368 square feet of floor space, plus gardens, and a house area of 5,382 square feet, this grand project was completed in 1975.  One has to admire the enormously high ceilings and the dark, rustic decor gracing the interior.  The look, both inside and out, is akin to a Medieval gothic castle.
