Chateau d'eau from Steenokerzeel in Steenokkerzeel, Belgium

Located in Steenokkerzeel, Belgium, this water tower built in 1941 sits on a small lot measuring 52.5 feet by 65.6 feet. The Nazis used it during World War II as a watchtower and then, until the 1990s, it was a functioning water tower. In 2005 the “Chateau d'eau from Steenokerzeel,” as it’s known, became a protected landmark. In addition to a hefty overhaul of the interior, the structure received a lot of attention. Mauro Brigham, founder of design studio Bham, oversaw the interior design work. The towering structure was converted into a single-family home in 2007. Take a look at the interior here.
