The water tower of Delft, The Netherlands, was built in 1895. After a period of non-use, talented Dutch architects of Rocha Tombal gave it a new purpose. The revived tower is now home of two meeting/meditation rooms, a restaurant (located in the old water tank), and a water shop. On the outside nothing seems to have changed since 1895 – but when you enter… See for yourself!

The Hyllie Water Tower is located in Malmö, Sweden, in the Hyllie district. Ever since it was completed in 1973, it stands 62 meters high. Its elegant, science fiction-like shape was drawn up by architect Karl Ivar Stål from the Stockholm-based Kjessler and Mannerstråle architects (now WSP Sweden?). And although the water tower has a panorama floor in the top, I’d happily look at it from the outside! Photography by Kim Høltermand.
