[photo of the bathroom]Zecc Architecten took a water tower in Soest in 2004, and converted it into a house with eight floors. One side of the tower was “cut open” across the bottom three floors to let in more light. With this repurposing the company won the 2004 Watertorenprijs (Dutch).

The photo by Zecc Architecten shows the bathroom; check out the ceiling!
