The Silo in Copenhagen's Nordhavn receives great recognition with RENOVER Prisen as Denmark's best renovation project in 2018. Out of 182 entries, the prize was awarded on Thursday, September 6th to the team behind the renovation of the former grain silo in Copenhagen's Nordhavn; COBE, Klaus Kastbjerg and NRE Denmark.

It was the chairman of the nomination committee, Gøsta Knudsen, who presented the award:
 
"The Silo is a billiant example of an ambitious transformation of a post-industrial harbour area into attractive, exclusive residences. This is of great value as there are multiple abandoned silos located around Denmark's harbour areas, awaiting the decision to be reused or demolished. The recklessness of The Silo's material roughness, the interior design and the groundbreaking architectural facade expression are all so promising and innovative that there is absolutely no doubt about the renovation's calibre."

The RENOVER award is founded by Realdania and Grundejernes Investeringsfond and was first time awarded in 2013. The purpose of the award is to provide renovation projects the visibility and recognition that the discipline deserves.
