Fit for Rapunzel — though there are stairs — this Belgian water tower in the village of Steenokkerzeel was renovated into a private home in 2007. The home is 30 meters tall and has 6 floors plus a rooftop terrace.
The renovation design was done by Bham Design Studio. Because the tower is predominately concrete, (it was in service as a water tower for about 50 years and was used by the Nazis as a watch tower) the designers painted both new and old concrete gray to blur the division.
HOW IT BREAKS DOWN
1 Main entrance & garage for 2 cars
2 Technical room, storage and utility
3 Guest room & office
4 Bathroom — I love the heavy floor-to-ceiling drapes in this room.
6 Living room, kitchen and dining room — the heart of the home is six floors up! Check out the chalkboard wall and sleek modern kitchen with bridge above it!
7 Panoramic terrace — complete with outdoor shower!
