The silos have long been part of the Johannesburg skyline to the west of the M1 highway. Originally used to store grain and owned by the Premier Milling group, the silos have been unused for decades…until now.
The Silos have been converted into student accommodation with over 400 apartments. In addition to the residential accommodation, 4 layers of shipping containers have been added on top of the silos for additional accommodation.
Perfectly perched on top of the containers is an event venue like no other. The venue boasts 360 degrees of Joburg’s skyline. The venue has artificial grass to soften the design in contrast to the steel structure overhead. The venue has 4 braai facilities with wash basins. There is a kitchen and prep area as well as a container which can be utilized as a bar or catering area.
