Water Tower Turned Townhouse

Back in 2005, British designer Tom Dixon bought this water tower in North Kensington, London. Dixon has been working with sustainable architectural firm SUSD to convert the landmark structure, 60 feet tall and capable of holding 5,000 gallons of water, into a townhouse. According to the Daily Mail:

The tower has been fitted out to meet the highest eco-friendly standards, and a 'heat exchange' system using water pumped from the Grand Union Canal, which runs by the foot of the tower, is planned.

If you are planning a trip to London and are looking for a room with a view, you're in luck. Daily rates start at $211, and you can read more about the accommodations on Airbnb.
