HELPED by films and books such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” someone’s childhood dreams could be realised after a chocolate factory in Catalonia has now had its transformation into a luxury family home completed. Located in the small town of La Bisbal, about half an hour away from Girona, the modifications have tried to preserve as much of the character of the original building as possible. This has resulted in a lot of open plan spaces and minimal change to the old brick and stone warehouse that was an integral part of the site.
There is still room for a swimming pool, a huge living room, several bedrooms and an impressive kitchen, all spread over three very different floors. There are communal spaces on each floor, a rooftop terrace with stunning views and beamed ceilings. The final structure consists of a large family home and studio apartment, ideal for guests. Sweet!
