9. Water Tower Home, Greenwich Village

As water towers are adopted into the art world, it makes sense that they would also seep into the realm of architecture. A steel water tank in Greenwich Village has been converted into a fully functional rooftop cottage with 24-foot ceilings. The tank/cottage is seated above a two-bedroom, pre-war condo and serves as a personal little getaway. See photos here!
