It has long been popular for designers and architects to find ways of re-purposing industrial buildings. These structures often have an historic or even an iconic appearance, and thus are sometimes sought after by those looking for a more unique living space. Patrick Mets is one such individual.
Mets has always been interested in water towers in his native Belgium, the brick and concrete structures that used to supply people with water across the country. And while working for a company in Brussels, he began to dream of living in one of these structures. As a result, he eventually set out to make his dream a reality.
