Water Tower progress


Our conversion of an industrial water tower into a holiday home in Norfolk is progressing well on site. The ribbon window has been cut into the steel panelled tank, once home to gallons of water and soon to be home to a living space with a unique view across the surrounding landscape. 

A new stair tower made of cross laminated timber is formed as a compression spiral, linking the tank to ground level and bracing the original structure. Below the tank, in a series of stacked cross laminated timber boxes, sit the bedrooms and bathrooms.
