19th Century Water Tower Becomes Modern Residence in Central London

Unwittingly, Leigh Osborne and Graham Voce have created the old-water-tower-turned-modern-residence I never even knew I wanted but now must possess – you know, as soon as I win the next big Powerball jackpot. The owners designed and built the residence of my far-reaching dreams over the course of eight months. During that time, the 19th-century relic in central London was cleaned up and repurposed, ultimately given new life as a private residence with four bedrooms and a personal gym. There is even an elevator that leads up to a unique space where the original, but now-repurposed water tank sits, boxed in so as to form a window-lined room offering what are sure to be some incredible panoramic views of London – at least when it isn’t foggy.

  1. Ok…the tower house IS very cool. The words that came with it…are as cool. I love The Rayograph.
