Stunning Water Tower Conversion in London The water Tower

London-based location agency 1st-Option features a unique portfolio of shoot locations for stills photography, TV and filming.
We spotted this unique project on their website, a truly stunning water tower conversion located in north-western London, England, UK.
This Venetian-Gothic water tower was built in 1877 by Fowler and Hill, as part of Lambeth Workhouse and Infirmary, latterly Lambeth Hospital.

The tower is 99 foot tall with 5 foot-thick walls and crowned with a huge steel water tank.
Utterly derelict, the tower was listed for £395,000 in 2008, and bought by Leigh Osbourne and Graham Voce who converted it into a spectacular luxury home.
The tower now houses four bedrooms and 360 degree views across London, with a lift shaft alongside the tower, while at the bottom is a new, modern living space nicknamed the ‘Cube’.
