Garden office in a water tower



Here's an ingenious shedworking space, a 1920s watertower refurbished by architect Geoffrey Holton and turned into a garden office. The tower needed considerable work (including actually stablising it and adding windows) and the interior was built using recycled and salvaged wood. The original and atmospheric tank is to be turned into a children's observatory. “The whole project has the spirit of sustainable building,” Holton told Mary Jo Bowling at Sunset. “We all saw the value of saving what was there.” Photos by Christina Schmidhoffer
