Innovative Conversion: 1931 Water Tower Turned into Modern Apartment

We’ve seen a large variety of unconventional homes on Freshome, but this is a first. Zecc Architects managed the impossible: converting a 1931 water tower in Soest, The Netherlands into a contemporary home with no less than nine levels. As you probably already imagined, many challenges came with this uncommon “home renovation”.  According to I New Idea, light was the main issue, as the tower only had a few small windows. The solution? Inserting a three-level high window which lets light in without interfering with the tower’s mid-century appearance. All the rooms are circular and the connection between them is ensured through stairs. There is even an unconventional terrace located on the last level. Below you have the nine floor plans for a better understanding of this original and mind-blowing project.
