The water tower, designed by architect J. Kalff, was built in 1885 on the edge of the city fortifications of Den Bosch. The monument is characterized by its castle-like architecture with large closed elevations and the merlons at the eaves.
The house is located on a plot, not very large. This situation invites to compact the house on one side, continuing the alignment of the street façade while maximizing the patio with good solar exposure. The house occupies a corner plot.
