The water tower in Örebro is an established city symbol and a protected landmark. Our proposal is a respectful supplement whose main principle is based on transparency. To preserve and strengthen “The Mushrooms” identity all detailing has been reduced to a minimum and a strong laminated glass wall that forms the backbone of our proposal. The project transforms the water tower into a safe view point and visitors is offered a stunning 360-degree view over city and landscape. By playing with integrated LED illumination the water tower is given another dimension, and during evenings “The Mushroom” parades with a halo.
