After the conversion into an art gallery/information point, the exterior of Lasva Water Tower seems economical and minimalist, with emphasis on special interior design effects, like the piano stairs solutions, where the steps function as piano keys. The acoustics room of the sound tank, the lightning and the furniture. Allowance has been made for the residency of a guest artist and a grass terrace is on the roof.
