The Water Tower Home (12pics)


Located in Steenokkerzeel, Belgium... this home is truly unique since it was built and renovated within a decommissioned 1941 water tower... 
-Check out more photos of it below: 

This water tower was built in 1941 and sits on a small lot measuring 52.5 feet by 65.6 feet. The Nazis used it during World War II as a watchtower and then it was a functioning water tower until the 1990s. In 2005 the "Chateau d'eau from Steenokerzeel," as it's known, became a protected landmark. 

"It was a dream come true for my clients since they always wanted to live in a house whith a lot of character," says Mauro Brigham, the designer who developed the project's concept. "When they had the chance to buy the [water tower], they didn't hesitate one single second."
