House in the Clouds

Suffolk, London

This structure was built in 1923 to house the water supply for the village of Thorpeness. In an effort to make the tower less of an eyesore, architects Glencairne Stuart Ogilvie and F. Forbes Glennie decided to throw a charming little cottage on top of it, which would house the water tank itself. When the structure outlived its usefulness, the waterworks were removed in 1979 and the place now serves as an inn called House in the Clouds. It now sits adjacent to a golf course and features unparalleled views of the sea at Suffolk Heritage Coast.
