A former water tower has been transformed into a residential building. Here’s a look inside.


When I saw this apartment, I was immediately impressed and wanted to share photos with you.

Memories immediately came flooding back – during my first business trip to Sweden, I was taken to a similar building.

That was in the mid-2000s. At the time, colleagues told me that apartment prices in this tower were enormously high – the square meter price was astronomical.

Many wealthy people wanted to experience the history and live in an unusual place.

Later, I learned that converting water towers into living spaces is not uncommon.

They are converted into apartments, restaurants, hotels, and even observatories.

Some water towers in the Tjumen region, where I lived for several years, have found a new purpose – a children’s creative club is located in one, while a private observatory has been built in another, where you can observe the stars for a small fee.

But back to our apartment today. It is located in an old water tower from 1912 in a suburb of Stockholm.

The tower supplied water to residents of the surrounding neighborhoods until 1959, before it was closed and preserved.

In the 1980s, the building was converted into an apartment house.

Overall, there are five apartments here with fantastic views of the surroundings (some windows overlook the river).

The tower rises to a height of 28 meters.

The aforementioned apartment is located on the fourth floor of the building.

There is also a garden and several courtyards on the property, where residents can grow vegetables and herbs if needed.
