It may look like the headquarters of a comic-book super hero or a post-apocalyptic hideout, but this converted factory doubles as an office and residence for its creator, Ricardo Bofill, who is located in Sant Just Desvern, Barcelona, Spain.
Bofill and his team at Taller de Arquitectura completed the project in 1975 after a massive renovation that involved the demolition of 22 of the abandoned factory’s 30 original silos.
Owned by YES! Hotels and located near Constitution Square in downtown Athens, Greece, the NEW hotel is a 79-room establishment, where every public space and every floor has been creatively renewed to include remnants of the former Olympic Palace Hotel.
Principe Forte dei Marmi is located on the Tuscan coast in Italy, just 38 minutes from Pisa, 36 minutes from Lucca and 1 hour and a half from Florence, offering spectacular views of the ocean and the Apuane Alps.
The 28 room hotel is set in the ideal location for exploring the Tuscan Riviera and is also a stone’s throw away from the major landmarks of the region.
