Built in 1956 on the outskirts of Braunschweig, this former water tower hasn’t been used as such for decades. In the 90s, this listed monument was transformed into a residential building. Now, following a recent renovation, the tower is being rented out as a holiday home for up to eight people.

Throughout its conversion, great emphasis was placed on adding a residential character while retaining the aesthetic of its original function as a water reservoir. The south side of the tower has been broken up. Large window openings flood the rooms with light and offer a wide view of the landscape. The upper floor is additionally illuminated by an encircling band of glass bricks and a roof lantern. The rooms are spread over four levels: on the ground floor there is a large kitchen with access to the terrace. On the first and second floor there are each two bedrooms and a bathroom. The living room is on the top floor, complete with a kitchenette, dining area and panoramic views to the Harz.

wir waren am vergangenen Wochenende in dem Architekturm in Braunschweig und sind vollkommen begeistert. Als wir die Bilder von dem ZTurm gesehen haben, war die Vorfreude natürlich groß, aber der Turm wie er dort steht ist noch beeindruckender. Liebevoll eingerichtet, wunderschön mit einem traumhaften Blick in den Harz. Auch der Kontakt zu den Eigentümern war sehr herzlich und unkompliziert. Wir kommen gerne wieder :-)
