silo house-10 Photos: Christoph Kaiser

In 1955 it was used by a Kansas farmer to store grain, today the former silo is home to architect Christoph Kaiser and his wife.

Located in downtown Phoenix, Silo House has a 190-square-foot circular footprint and 340 square feet of total living space. A two-level loft built to achieve maximum “spaciousness and simplicity,” virtually every feature was designed by Kaiser himself, including the nine-foot wide sliding wall and vertical window/door.

Inside, the curved walnut interior features a spiral stair case, hidden movie projector opposite the bed, custom cabinetry, a small bathroom and a skylight in place of the silo’s oculus, which is traditionally used to allow air to move through the grain.
