The Silo, built in 1924, used to be a wheat container at the time of Marseille’s grand commercial days. Abandoned for a while, it was declared historical industrial building and bought by the town of Marseille in 2001, after an extensive renovation from 2007 onwards, it became partly an office block, and finally opened the 2000 seats concert hall in September 2011. 

It’s characteristic silhouette sits nicely next to the Docks, complementing the industrial look of that area that will soon be dialoging with a range of high tech buildings from the Euromediterranée project.




The renovation kept the industrial look intact, playing it’s partition around it.
