In converting the old twin Seed Silos on Copenhagen's waterfront into residential towers, the architects placed the circulation in the core of the concrete structures and, literally,"clipped" the apartment to the exterior of the silos. Both silo cores are covered by glass roofs, forming a lobby area as tall as the building itself, and within which residents and visitors will be able to pass upwards and downwards. In this way the silo will form a new core for the project, while all of the useable parts of the structure, all of its spaces, will benefit from the project's unique location. --
