The Cement Factory



In 1973, architect Ricardo Bofill bought an abandoned cement factory in Barcelona and converted it to use as his business offices, creative studio, and home. He spent two years remodeling: tearing down some buildings, converting others, and leaving some of the original equipment in place for its charm. The result is an inspiring and overwhelmingly spacious headquarters. See more pictures at yatzer. Link -via b3ta

You should really take a look at "Steam Plant Square" in Spokane, Washington. An entire steam plant redesigned to house businesses in its rafters and a restaurant on the main floor. Nearly all of the original equipment is in place, just shined up. The original boiler room is one of the banquet rooms, with all of the pipes and brickwork as it was originally. It's a fabulous place for anyone who likes the industrial feeling. The photos on their site do not do the place justice. http://www.steamplantsquare.com
