The Silo Reviews & Information

Use the drop down below to find out more information about The Silo.

The Silo Luxury Hotel will be occupying a unique space towering above the bustling Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town from where magnificent views of the city, ocean and Table Mountain can be admired.

The architect of this exciting new development at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront is renowned industrial designer Thomas Heatherwick who transformed the elevator house as well as the adjacent storage annexe of six rows, seven silos while retaining its cultural significance and creating a building which will be iconic to Cape Town's skyline. 

The most significant change to the building’s original structure will be the pillowed glazing panels which will be inserted into the geometry of the hotel floors, bulging outwards as if gently inflated.  During the night, this unique building structure will change the construction into a glowing lantern in the harbour.

The Silo Luxury Hotel in Cape Town will feature a total of 28 rooms which includes the spacious Penthouse.  Each of the rooms will be individually decorated and designed with stylish and colourful pieces with a modern touch.  The room categories vary in size and the views which can be admired from these. 

Unique will be the fact that the rooms will be more spacious vertically than horizontally which is based on the unique architecture of The Silo and particularly the fantastic design of the pillowed window bays which are one of the key architectural features of this building.
