Design and Art hotel The Silo, Cape Town
Design and Art hotel the Silo, Cape Town. One of the latest projects of Liz and Phil Biden. When I saw this on BBC2 television in the series Amazing Hotels, I was blown away. I needed to show you guys. By chance friends of mine happened to visit this place recently and were very impressed. They even send me photos that I could use, see some below.

More about the hotel. The exterior of the building was designed by Heatherwick, Founder, and Principal of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. A unique hotel and museum MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa) are built in this former grain silo complex. With already many projects built, Liz and Phil Biden started in 1999 with their first project of Royal Malewane a luxury safari lodge in South Africa’s Greater Kruger National Park. Liz always has been responsible for the fabulous decorations of all their projects. She decorated all the rooms differently with exquisite pieces of furniture and exotic fabrics.
The Silo has 28 rooms including a spacious 211m2 Penthouse with views of the Table Mountain and Cape Town. The Royal Suites are facing the Atlantic Ocean, Robben Island, and the distant mountains.
