Old Water Tower to Modern Living Space #design #arquitectura

Picture yourself living in a house that was built nearly 100 years ago, and was once even used as a Nazi hide-out during the war. Now add to this the fact that the house is actually a 100-feet high water tower that was in service till 1990, and you’ll get really close to grasping just how cool  is.

The Bham Design Studio started developing this tower renovation project in 2007, and eventually it ended up being a single family apartment, structured on five floors. The terrace on the top floor gives you a beautiful panorama, overlooking the Belgian village of Steenokkerzeel… and an outdoor shower!

Admirably, most of the original concrete elements were preserved during the reconstruction, aiming to keep the strong character of the building. That even meant keeping the 250.000 liters concrete water basin!
