How To: Design and draw an architectural water tower house

Design and draw an architectural water tower house

Take a lesson in architecture from renowned architect Doug Patt by watching this video tutorial. If you want to learn about drawing and designing, without going to school, Doug's just the teacher. Watch to see how to design and draw an architectural water tower house.

In this episode of Design a Dwelling, see where Doug designs a home. Water towers are everywhere and they come in all shapes and sizes. They store water and create pressure in the distribution system because of their height. These Marshall Wells water towers seemed very unique. Their shape and color are quite appealing, as is the fact that they sit one right next to the other. They're a perfect site for Design a Dwelling.

Doug started thinking about the new home as a bridge that spanned the gap between the two structures. The potential panoramic view was also really important, so a series of 360 degree balconies are a must. He also thought it would be really neat to maintain the architecture of the towers on the interior of the building by leaving them exposed as well as visible from the exterior of the new home. So, remember, this exercise is simply to describe what an architect might be thinking about in a schematic way if cost and schedule were in no way an issue.
