Two former silos on Copenhagen's waterfront are transformed into exciting new residences.
In converting the old twin Seed Silos on Copenhagen's waterfront
into residential towers the architects placed the circulation in
the core of the concrete structures and, literally, "clipped" the
apartment to the exterior of the silos.
Both silo cores are covered by glass roofs, forming a lobby area
as tall as the building itself, and within which residents and
visitors will be able to pass upwards and downwards. In this way
the silo will form a new core for the project, while all of the
useable parts of the structure, all of its spaces, will benefit
from the project's unique location.
