    Default In Germany, A Water Tower to Call Home

    A once derelict water tower, set in the Schorfheide-Chorin Biosphere Reserve, a Unesco nature park in the state of Brandenburg, Germany, is now both a home, tower at left, and a tourist attraction, tower at right, where visitors can access a viewing platform at the top.

    With the right furniture (and kitchen! - yech!), this place would be an amazingly unique space.

    That kitchen is the stuff of nightmares. I like the idea in theory but I think something was lost in the execution. Its very clinical/institutional in some places. Love the library/viewing area...

    I would hate having the people in the tourist tower always staring into my home.

    I don't like the kitchen but love the rest. All the lookey-loos would bother me. Maybe they own the tower and collect money from the tourist. If that is the case then let them look.
