Text by Matthew Turner: The approach to occupation of the site is to place different uses in distinct zones. An elevated 'beam' containing cultural uses engages with the silo tower, connecting it to the existing elevator building, and parking is provided at an upper level deck. A terrace of sawtooth roofed residential units forms a small open space. The silo is converted to apartments.

A larger area is considered for master planning, and the design for this consists of an expansion into a market area and a new-build residential silo. The description assigns the  architecture allusions to factory-scaled buildings.
