The Silo Hotel

The Silo Hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture, and design. A tribute to timeless glamour and contemporary luxury, this landmark hotel rises above Cape Town's V&A Waterfront and offers phenomenal harbor and City Bowl views. The Silo Hotel occupies the six floors above Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa). The Silo Hotel is also a treasure house of contemporary African art. Together, these two spaces have firmly placed the Mother City on the modern cultural map of the continent.  The exterior of the building was designed by Thomas Heatherwick, of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. The pillowed- glass windows are equally striking from within or outside the hotel, framing the views and transforming the historic grail silo into a glowing beacon by night.
