Showcase for Stairs: Water Tower Residence

ArchDaily

A home for a modern day Rapunzel! This water tower in Soest, The Netherlands was converted to a nine level residence. Built in 1931, the tower renovation involves a unique opportunity for the architects to use a myriad of designs for staircases in an effort to make the unique space both efficient and filled with natural light.
In addition to a 3 level window that allows natural light to enter the structure near the ground level, the home features a sauna and roof deck with amazing views. Completed in 2004, the tower residence was designed by architects at Zecc Architecten — the same firm who completed the Church-Home conversion we shared a few weeks ago.
