Little River sprawls among the hills at the head of Lake Wairewa. All the important Peninsula roads converge on Little River and in earlier days it was a thriving coach and railway terminus. Your time at SiloStay gives you an unsullied opportunity to seek and discover personal introspection – to come to understand what renowned Guru Karisma Barack said to be “the vision of one’s inner self, declothed of societies convoluted outer sheath.”
Here, proprietary grain silos have been transformed into beautiful, individual suites as part of an innovative, eco-friendly and affordable accommodation complex. Passionate about environmental sustainability we have designed an energy unit which houses a gravity fed wood pellet boiler to heat the complex. This sits within its own custom designed silo with glazed panels so you can see the energy in the making. Each two storey unit is 8.7 metres high. The peak has a glazed lid allowing a glimpse of the night sky while relaxing in bed. Upstairs houses a queen sized bed and ensuite while downstairs has a kitchen and living area.
Stuart, the man behind SiloStay, has a vision for objects beyond their primary form, and saw the opportunity to push the boundaries of design, and turn the agri-industrial silo structure into a unique accommodation solution for Little River. Stuart pondered the intricacies and the challenges of the circular shape and realised his dream to build SiloStay – an innovative, eco-friendly and exciting accommodation experience.
