The Tank House14. Jul2011

Initially being just a loft space reconsideration, the project extended and finally consisted in combining a rennovation of the existing loft apartment with the conversion of a sprinkler tank house to create an urban retreat in the noisy New York.

The aim of the big sprinkler tank located on the roof was to be a retreat, a place for relaxing. For this, the roof was refurbished and redesigned to include the tank in the new landscape. The original massive cast iron tank was removed and a replica made of wood replaced it.
