It stood empty for most of the last decades, until local businessman Patrick Mets hired Brussels based architecture firm Bham Design Studio in 2007 to convert the former water tower into an amazing family home. Just look at this room.

Aside from the large glass window panes and being built in an old water tower, what makes this home so unique is its high-tech features.

There are movable projectors and an advanced domotics system that lets you control every aspect of the home.
