Located on the interchange of the motorways A1, A6 and A3, a node for travelers from Luxemburg, Belgium, France and Germany, Gasperich's new water tower can be seen from wide distances while it lyrically inscribes itself into the commercial neighborhood as a light house of the "blue gold".

In 2013 the architectural office Jim Clemes Associates from Esch-sur-Alzette emerged as the winner from an architectural competition for a new water tower. Their design envisions shrouding the functional core with a seemingly dynamic mesh of flat, white coated aluminum ribbons that cloaks the concrete wall at a distance of approximately 50 centimeters.

Completed in 2018, a widely visible edifice rose from the ground during the two-year construction period - with a height of 68.5m, it is the highest water tower in the country. It takes center stage among the surrounding industrial and commercial buildings by virtue of its impressive visual presence - during the day and at night.

The lighting concept considerably contributes to this appearance by rendering the texture and color of the exterior building envelope palpable. The official start of the illumination was on 8th June 2018.

The tower illumination comes from below by LED floodlights equipped with RGBW-chips. Through programmed scenes, monochromatic and colored light scenes – like the three-colored national flag, color gradients or animated light sequences can all be achieved, in addition to the standard "meaningful" white lighting.
