The water tower in Nieuw Lekkerland is built in 1915. The tower has a hexagonal form and is made out of a concrete skeleton filled up with masonry. The tower is situated on a dike just outside the village Nieuw Lekkerland. The view from the tower is breath taking. On one side of the tower one looks out on the river De Lek, on the other side one has a view on the typical Dutch polder landscape with its many windmills. The water tower is bought by two local citizens of Nieuw Lekkerland. They asked Ruud Visser Architects to make a design for the conversion of the water tower into two appartments.
