1 A his­toric grain silo in Cape Town has been re­pur­posed as South Africa’s most breath­tak­ing new ho­tel, SILO (left). Ar­chi­tect Thomas Heather­wick added mul­ti­fac­eted win­dow bays to the in­dus­trial struc­ture, and de­signer Liz Bi­den dec­o­rated the 28 rooms with the­atri­cal flair. The baroque prop­erty, which tow­ers over the Vic­to­ria & Al­fred Wa­ter­front precinct and has views of Ta­ble Moun­tain, is perched above the Zeitz Mu­seum Of Con­tem­po­rary Art Africa (MOCAA). theroy­al­port­fo­lio.com 2 W SHANG­HAI (above) is a col­li­sion of neon colour, ’20s flash and BladeRun­ner fu­tur­ism.
