Amazing grain silo home makes living simply look like living the high life.
Architect Christoph Kaiser turned a dismantled grain silo, purchased online from a Kansas farmer, into a cozy studio in Phoenix, Arizona. The 190-square-foot space is outfitted with a highly customized interior—only the Eames dining chairs were not made by Kaiser—that serves as a comfortable home for him and his wife.” – Dwell

This is one of the structures designed & built by residents at Taliesin West.
Live/ Work Shelter in the Arizona Desert. New steel and polycarbonate structure is superimposed upon the ‘artifact’ of concrete and stone, creating a dialouge between historic and contemporary forms. A grassy lawn cantilevers over a dry wash, further intensifying the contrast between the Natural and transient human intervention.” – Victor Sidy
