Woning Moereels, Van Watertoren Tot Vuurtoren, Brasschaat, Belgium. Built: 1991-1996.
We love the idea of recycling old industrial structures into housing.
"For a long time the owner was in love with an old water tower and the little park around it, outside of Antwerp. Although it was by no means possible to live in the old tower, since it was just a skeleton, with a huge barrel on top, he started dreaming of building it into a house. And six years later, together with his architect, he made a dream come through." ::Jo Crepain; more pictures at ::Office for Word and Image
