Perched above the V&A Waterfront, The Silo radiates the enchantment of Cape Town’s iconic landscape. With a collection of 28 uniquely crafted rooms, including an opulent penthouse, each space is a testament to Liz Biden’s impeccable design touch. The rooms, infused with vibrant and eclectic pieces, contrast beautifully with the contemporary, industrial architecture. While room categories depend on size and vistas, each boasts impressive vertical space, amplified by the innovative pillowed window bays – a standout architectural feature.
Thomas Heatherwick, the visionary behind London’s Heatherwick Studio, crafted the structure. From an external viewpoint, the most noticeable transformation is the pillowed glazing panels, seamlessly integrated into the hotel’s design, which seem to gently puff outwards. As night falls, these panels illuminate, casting The Silo as a shimmering beacon in the harbour.
