I think it should be exciting to live in an ancient tower. The architects from De Matos Ryan presented such unusual project. The Round Tower is an ancient tower in England, which was reconstructed and turned to contemporary family residence. An underground extension, designed around a fully glazed courtyard, was added to the tower where an open living room, pool and terrace are situated. There is also a guest house and garage there. The main living areas are equipped in the tower, which became a modern dwelling with four bedrooms. The roof of the tower features a viewing platform for relaxation, with a magnificent view of the surroundings where you can enjoy privacy.
