Every so often, you’ll see a property and think “wow, I really wish I lived there”. And pretty much every time, they’re a thoroughly individual, old industrial building.

Located in Soest, Holland, the Watertower Home by Zecc Architects has got everything you could ever need inside, and one-of-a-kind aesthetics from the out. Dating back to 1931, the converted building packs a whopping nine floors and more windows than you could ever dream of, creating a wonderfully bright living space within, including a three-level high frame.

The steel water tank floor divides the tower in two, with the traditional rooms (kitchen, living room and second bedroom) in the lower section, and a sauna, study and master bedroom above. You can abseil off the roof too.
