Water Tower House Has Cat Bathroom and Roof Shower


This water tower to house conversion has a very unusual element: a bathroom for the cat. And an outdoor shower on the roof with a most magnificent view! When the client asked Bham Design Studio to convert an old Belgian water tower into their house, they considered the resident pet, too. Not many cats have their own bathroom with a sun-drenched space in front for their lazing pleasure. The door to the cat’s private bathroom is a charming detail – shaped like a cat’s head. And easy for the pet to climb in and out. And it’s not just the cat who appreciates the privacy. The whole process becomes private and there’s no kitty litter in view anywhere. And don’t you just love the rooftop shower? The view is so expansive!


The cat, in their own private water closet!
