The historic grains silo at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town gets refurbished to accommodate the Silo Hotel. Designed by London based Heatherwick Studio, the site maintains its strong industrial feel.
Concrete walls are now adorned with pillowed glass windows overlooking the harbor. Interiors were conceived by The Royal Portfolio that married the old with the new.
Each of the 28 rooms was individually decorated, mixing unassuming glamour with comfort. Eclectic artworks, retro furnishings and insets of raw materials make an overall effect modern and unique.
