MAKE POURS INNOVATION INTO WATER TOWER

  • Comment
NEWS IN PICTURES

Make Architects has won the green light for this unusual scheme - the conversion of a disused 1930s water tower in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, into offices. The project will create around 2,200m 2 of commercial space, nearly 400m 2 of which will be housed in a three-storey glazed 'lantern' on top of the 24m-tall tower. Overlooking the A14, the development also features a fourstorey extension at the base of the original 10,000-tonne concrete structure, which was abandoned in the mid-1970s. The tower itself will become a new lift and stairwell.

As well as a geothermal heat pump and photovoltaic cells, the scheme boasts a 6kW wind turbine. Work is expected to start on site by the end of the year and is due to complete by early 2008.
