Water Tower Transformed Into Modern Residence
House transformations of old dysfunctional buildings has become a huge trend both challenging and promising. Conversion of old churches and barns is quite common now, water towers? Not so much. The medieval Lymm Water Tower was renovated and extended by Ellis William Architects to create habitable pristine white space with an interesting interior architecture and a preserved historical tower.
Wrapping the tower around the new modern extension makes for a home of five bedrooms that include a double-height master bedroom with mezzanine bathroom, 3 en-suites and one family bathroom a fireplace and a roof garden with a hot tub.
The all-white interior is brightened with red sofas and mood lighting. The style is modern and minimalist with clean shapes and lines. The architecture is more intricate though. There is an elevated room with sofas and rounded area of depressed wooden floors.
The glazed facade wall lets plenty of natural light in opening up to the beautiful surrounding views. Set in Cheshire countryside the tower truly has beautiful landscapes to admire and the house itself is set on the mown green lawns.
There is also an eating area set outdoors surrounded by tall beautiful trees. The transformation turned out amazing no only in terms of the new residence but also in terms of preserving a historic building.
