Upcycling At It’s Finest – Two Industrial Icons Make One Residential

We make no secret of our affinity for up-cycling containers here at MODNPODS, but perhaps one of the unique projects we have run into not only includes the use of containers but also incorporates a former industrial grain silo.

Citiq, an innovative South African developer, eliminated potential costly and environmentally harmful demolition of silos, by adding 6-7 levels of containerised accommodation above, utilised for affordable/student housing, the project shows the potential of innovative thinking in brownfield development. Windows and structural support were added to create residences within the pre-existing silos themselves, with the containerised structure sitting ‘afloat’ the former industrial building. This just shows you what we can do with existing containers.
