The legendary Camelot of King Arthur

The cement factory towers are now totally covered with greens which gives them a magical feeling of Merlin revisited.

The cement factory “”La Fabrica”” is now transformed into an oasis and a private home.

La Fabrica working place is engulfed with light.

Arches and luminosity.

The Master bedroom with its roman windows reminds us of Guinevere’s bedroom.

Queen Guinevere by Henry Justice Ford 1910 artist and illustrator.

The roof of each building is covered with greenery.

The cement factory dining room is quite intimate considering the height of the ceiling.

I absolutely adore this living area with its bookshelves and its immense white Philippe Stark like drapes.

A cathedral ceiling and a cozy room.
