Brian Messana's gorgeous latest project, Tank House, is the quintessential NYC remodel: a renovated existing apartment plus the addition of an old, used sprinkler tank house, completing repurposed as a gorgeous, glistening rooftop loft escape. New meets old. Or maybe it's old meets older? Either way, it's what NYC does so well. [Inhabitat]

Mesanna renovated the home's existing interior.

Water towers and sprinkler tanks abound, but not all are repurposed so cleverly for living purposes.

Light floods through the house from the the circular skylight.
