Christoph Kaiser, a talented architect, took on a 1950s-era grain silo for his latest project, converting it into a luxurious modern home fit for a magazine. The home is located in Phoenix, Arizona, and the corrugated-steel silo was tall enough to build a two-story dwelling within its cylindrical walls, complete with modern decor. It all began when Kaiser purchased a dismantled 1955 grain silo online from a Kansas farmer, and after arriving, modifications were made during the reassembly process – including custom doors / windows, 10-inches of spray insulation, and a fresh paint job.

“When creating the silo’s interior, Kaiser took a cue from the shape of the building. Cabinets, counters, and even couches are curved to enhance the tiny space. Everything�with the exception of two Eames Wire Chairs�is custom built, and he used $350 worth of scrap walnut plank flooring to help keep his decorating costs low. A wood and black steel staircase leads from the living area to a cozy loft bedroom, which has an operable skylight that’s set within the cone-shaped roof. This gives the structure an airy feel, making it seem much larger than its 340-square-foot size,” according to My Modern Met.
