About Water House

Water House is a creative, rentable studio space on the north side of Des Moines, IA. The building was constructed in 1900 as a water pumping station and is now a fully renovated photo studio and event space. The industrial character mixed with more modern elements makes Water House a unique and versatile place to shoot and host in.
