Currently under construction at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, The Silo is being converted from a previously used grain silo in the port. It will become a central component within The Royal Portfolio, giving the world famous luxury hotel brand a new destination to offer in central Cape Town.
With construction well on its way, final open and launch dates have have been set for March 2017, yet they are hoping to open their doors to welcome guests in late 2016. Sign up to our newsletter below to make sure that you are the first to know.
With the reputation The Royal Portfolio already has with its other properties in South Africa: Royal Malewane, Birkenhead House and La Residence, we know that only the best will do. Take a look at the images below and you will see the design intentions behind concept.
One of the most exciting features that The Silo has to offer is the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA).
"Zeitz MOCAA will be a contemporary art museum to rival the likes of the Tate Modern in London, MoMA in New York and Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid. Zeitz MOCAA is a not-for-profit partnership between the V&A Waterfront and Jochen Zeitz, whose collection forms the Museum’s founding collection. Zeitz MOCAA will open in September 2017."
