Martello Tower Y Project
The Martello Tower Y project by Billings Jackson and Piercy & Company is a unique reconception of an old defence tower into a conteporary family residence. Let’s check it out!
Ex Defence Tower Turned into Residence
Billings Jackson Design together with Piercy & Company are responcible for the transformation of this marvelous historic construction, which is located in Suffolk, England. The original building was buil in 1808 and served as a Napoleonic defence tower. The conversion of the ex defence tower was a really tough project. The former defence tower is considered to be Monument on the At Risk, however the conversion won the support of the English Heritage program, who protects significant historical buildings.
The architectors and designers crew preserved the initial design and curves of the building, saving the magnificent brick wall ornaments. The new roofing however is completely futuristic, but goes really well with the internal and external structure. The interior of the tower however is really simple, yet functional. A perfect example of reconcenptualization of a building with rich historical background into something completely new and modern.
