In England an old water tower modernized both inside and outside , in a striking combination of materials and shapes. And in this particular house traditional brick and geometry of the water towers of the nineteenth century Londoners with modern materials like steel and glass, contrasting with its pure forms and taut surfaces and bright combine front patina and roughness of brick and stone.
Certainly unconventional work carried out by the architects Leigh Osborne & Graham Voce , but they have not only managed to create a unique, but also cozy and with a special charm house, although I suspect that not without some discomfort.
In favor it should be noted that main volume in which we find two floors connected by a double height, to make matters worse, can be fully opened to the outside through huge sliding windows.
In the lower floor has a large kitchen with a table to run no less than 10 people, with details as curious as industrial cutting rusty chairs and wooden table, he and some kitchen furniture in bright white, move into the contrast between old and new that are abroad.
Upstairs is the living room with sofas and a decor not so to my liking, although the space is spectacular.In addition, if the view does not fail me, there is a projector and a huge white screen hidden by the window, making that space in a theater in miniature.
No less remarkable is the terrace also find this black cube of steel and glass, but certainly the most spectacular is the attic space. A completely conservatory overlooking London in all directions. I do not know about you, but I would suffice me something to live, not I would need and the rest of the house.
The not so good part is that, being a water tower, the main building is vertical dimension , which means that the various rooms (again with a decor that does not quite fit with the architecture) will distribute in several plants.
Not just any elevator seen in the photos, which makes going to bed is an authentic pilgrimage, and even if there were, it is not ruled out, also it promises to be a cumbersome both.
