Used Sprinkler Tank House Sees New Life as a Gorgeous Rooftop Loft in NYC

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]
