A house built in a cereal silo

The American architect Christoph Kaiser he designed and built this house in Phoenix, Arizona, from a used grain silo he picked up in Kansas when a farmer wanted to get rid of it. As lovers of the rural environment, the architect and his wife live happily in the small space thanks to their intelligent design that uses every inch.

The living space does not reach 20 square meters but thanks to the open floor plan and the personalized interior it seems wide. The architect and owner did everything in this space, to design the furniture and the kitchen lamp that also serves to store pots and pans.

The ground floor is open to the outside, which makes it possible to live without suffering an attack of claustrophobia. Almost all the wood used to create the interior of the house is recovered.

The bedroom follows the line that we have seen in the kitchen and is also built with wood recovered mainly walnut. It is installed in a loft and thanks to the side window receives a good amount of natural light.

The bathroom is minimal, by pure logic but is very well designed to offer the maximum in the minimum space possible.

Around the house the owners can enjoy a beautiful and practical garden with raised beds where they can grow their own vegetables. A design, that of this curious house, simple but that teaches us how to take advantage of space even when it has such a peculiar shape.
