A Penthouse Apartment in a London Water Tank Offers Utilitarian Style for $781K
The award-winning flat atop a 1950s Brutalist structure has a multistory interior finished with wood, concrete, and exposed electrical conduits.
New to the market in northeast London, this converted one-bedroom penthouse sits atop a landmarked brutalist apartment building known as the Keeling House. Once a water tank, the concrete shell was expanded and retrofitted by architect Brian Heron in 2017. Heron’s design—which received numerous accolades and was shortlisted for a RIBA award—nods to the structure’s utilitarian origins with a simple palette of materials and clever storage solutions.
