A Converted Silo House By Christoph Kaiser

Words

Arizona-based architect and product designer Christoph Kaiser converted a mid-century steel-wall grain silo into a house. Located in the heart of Downtown Phoenix’s up-and-coming Garfield Historic District, the Silo House is restricted to a 230 sq ft footprint and a 340 sq ft total livable space. The main challenge faced by the architects was to offer the typical functions of a home in a radically more compact way. The pictures are proof of the successful metamorphosis of a silo to a home that also fulfills the demand for an affordable, modern living space.
