The Silo is a feat of architectural imagination and style in the prime location of the V&A Waterfront in the heart of Cape Town. This striking hotel is located in the old elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which aims to have the largest collection of modern African art on the world. The Silo is constructed from glass panels and steel and at night, is transformed into a glowing beacon in the working harbour.
