Unique home created from an old water tower
Today’s inspiration is absolutely not an everyday solution: an architect couple have bought and restored an old water tower, turning it into a lovely home.
“At the end of the XIX century, near the railway stations there were many water towers, which were necessary to provide water for locomotives. When the railway network was modernized and moved first to diesel, and then to electric traction, all these structures lost their practical importance. Many of them were destroyed or were in a state of ruins.
The purpose of the restoration work was to turn the tower into a dwelling, as well as a small neighboring house.''
