Old Water Tower Transformed into a Modern Home


Leigh Osborne and Graham Voce are the owners of this amazing residence, which they had spent several months designing, constructing and ultimately transforming from its original state as an old water tower. Located in central London, the tower was an architectural remnant of the 19th-century that has long since been untouched until this year.

When the duo first came upon the tower, they were unfortunately welcomed by 2,000 dead pigeons and an unthinkable amount of droppings. It was definitely an uphill battle to repurpose the building into their dream home. However, in the end, Osborne and Voce managed to create a modern living space that boasts 4 bedrooms, a gym, a rooftop terrace, a functioning elevator, spacious bathrooms, and enormous windows for a refreshing stream of natural light.

It took only 8 months to meet their ambitious goal of constructing a home that is not only breathtaking to look at, but also offers its own jaw-dropping views. Crowning the massive tower from the beginning was a water tank that Osborne and Voce decided to keep with the addition of six windows to offer a 360 view of London like no other. Each side of the room presents a different vista to take in. It’s an admirable feat to have accomplished and will most probably remain a legendary landmark for centuries to come.
