A Rich Guy Buys a Water Tower – Design You Trust

A Rich Guy Buys a Water Tower

This 100ft (30 meters) water tower located in the small Belgian village of Steenokkerzeel was originally built between 1938 and 1941.

It stood empty for most of the last decades, until local businessman Patrick Mets hired Brussels based architecture firm Bham Design Studio in 2007 to convert the former water tower into an amazing family home. Just look at this room.

It’s incredible.

Seriously, incredible.

Even the cat’s lair was given special attention.

No dogs allowed apparently.

The gorgeous spiral staircase goes upstairs.

Aside from the large glass window panes and being built in an old water tower, what makes this home so unique is its high-tech features.

There are movable projectors and an advanced domotics system that lets you control every aspect of the home.

From the color of the lights…

…to the temperature in each part of the home.

Kitty approves of his water tower home.

The real prize of this place is where these stairs lead.

Once you’re on the top floor, you get closer to the epic terrace.

That beautiful view makes this place one in a billion. You get a 360 degree panoramic view of everything.

I want to live here. Right now.
