Water Tower Home in Belgium

Would You Make Your Home in a Nontraditional Building?

Although it once held 66,000 gallons of water, this water tower in Belgium is now occupied by a married couple, two girls, and three cats. Owned by Patrick Mets, whose unique home was recently featured in the New York Times, the water tower home, shown here, still includes many of the original features. The renovation of the water tower took $2.1 million, and the water tower, which was renovated by Bham Design Studio, has been transformed into a sleek and elegant space. Luxurious additions, such as a freestanding bathtub by Matteo Thun that cost over $8,000 and rests on an oak platform, ensure that this is no pedestrian water tower conversion.

The standard split-level ranch or two-story Craftsman is far from the only choice for adventurous home dwellers. In college, I lived in a converted church and years later rented a room in a 19th century brownstone schoolhouse. With a little imagination, homeowners can beautifully convert everything from barns to commercial spaces to the home of their dreams.
