Water Tower conversion / ACR Architects + Woodhall Planning and Conservation

It’s amazing what you can do with an old building. You can convert it into something as special as The Water Tower conversion in Kennington, London, SE1.

It if looks familiar, it’s because the project to go from functional (but grade II-listed) Venetian Gothic style tower to modernist gem was featured in the 100th Grand designs show on Channel 4 in 2012. You can relive the show here and find just how much time and effort it took to convert the derelict tower into what you can see here.

Of course, it all comes at a price. That price being £4,750,000. Another one to ponder when the Lotto numbers come up — via WowHaus
