Silos Circular Living

Silos Circular Living

402/55 Islington Street Collingwood Victoria 3066

This prominent industrial landmark in Collingwood has been transformed and revitalised offering you the most unique stay imaginable. The vision and ingenuity of this design is unprecedented in any other accommodation complexes. The former grain storehouse, Islington Silos, spans four cylindrical zones per apartment, with two apartments per level. Silos Circular Living sees you occupy one of the two on Level 4.

Maintaining the integrity of the existing silo building was a key focus with the preservation of the original facade of the heritage listed James Hood & Co. Malt Store entrance, which has been a part of Collingwood’s history since 1878.

Your spacious ultra-modern 3 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment comes with stunning uninterrupted 270 degree views. Enjoy sitting back and watching the hot air balloons float across the sky in the early morning from your very own balcony complete with a café style table and chairs. 

Behind the James Malthouse historic brick façade the industrial feel of the external building has been weaved in with soft and fresh contemporary touches to bring together the urban chic apartment complemented by stunning finishes, including stone bench tops, top quality appliances, hidden European laundry, pantry, fridge and much more.

The circular shaped rooms add the wow factor to every room with big glass windows that allow you to see different parts of the city whilst maximising light. Sit on the couch and gaze out to see the lights of the MCG and the Melbourne city skyline and another across to Collingwood Town Hall. There is no way you won’t feel like you are in Melbourne when staying here.

Great for corporates or those longer stays with plenty of space for everyone as it can sleep up to 7. There is a separate desk in the second bedroom, a large Marri wooden dining table accompanied with 8 Jakob Rudowski Chairs, free Wi-Fi and Netflix, a secure parking car space and public transport within a minutes walk. Also your workout won’t be put on hold as you have access to the residents' gym as well as the communal BBQ area. Don't forget to add some fresh herbs from the communal garden downstairs to make your meal complete.
