Beyer-Schubert Architekten has transformed this old water tower into a stunning holiday home.
The water tower is part of a historic building ensemble and the landmark of the Rummelsburg Bay – a Berlin residential and recreation area adjacent to the trendy district of Friedrichshain. The 22 meters high bricktower from 1875 is divided into five levels with a floor height of 4 to 5.4 meters.
Each level has a different function: Level 1 is the entrance area with access to the terrace and the small garden. Level 2 includes the kitchen with two balconies, where you can enjoy the morning or evening sun. At level 3 is the bathroom with freestanding bath, followed by the sleeping area on level 4.
Level 5 is the living area with fireplace and a wrap around balcony. The climb is worth it, because you will be rewarded with a 360 degree panorama of the city of Berlin: from the television tower in Berlin-Mitte on the Ferris wheel in Treptow Park to the water landscape of the River Spree.
