Leigh Osborne and Graham Voce live in what is no doubt one of London’s most extraordinary homes: a 19th-century water tower in the district of Kennington, superbly furnished, among other things, with porcelain tiles from Mosa. The building, which is listed as a cultural heritage site, has walls of up to 1.5 meters thick, very narrow windows and a relatively small footprint, making it not exactly an ideal candidate for repurposing.

However, at 30 meters high, the tower makes up for these shortcomings and offers amazing vistas out over downtown London. To maximize the experience, the old water tank was fitted with large panorama windows and turned into a “prospect room” that offers a complete all-round view. Below the tank there are four bedrooms and a gym. A separate tower houses the lift and a range of bathrooms, each in a different design. Spacious bathtubs and showers and the medium-gray tiles from Mosa bear witness to the owners’ high standards and their willingness to invest extraordinary efforts into this project.

Aptly named the “Cube”, the two-storey annex boasts a large living room and a combined kitchen and dining area. Here, too, the duo opted for unglazed porcelain tiles from Mosa’s superior collection, which provide a wonderful contrast to the vintage metal chairs and the gleaming Corian steel in the kitchen. Frost-proof and easy to maintain, the tiles from the Terra Maestricht collection were also ideal for use on the rooftop terrace of the “Cube”. Analogously to the brickwork of the tower, the light gray porcelain tiles lend character to the newly built sections of this phenomenal living space.
