Concrete Bunker Vacation Home by B-ILD
The Belgian architecture studio B-ILD has finally given you the chance to spend the night in an underground concrete bunker. Located near Fort Vuren, in the Netherlands, this bunker has been transformed into a fully furnished vacation home.
Originally designed and built to withstand mortar fire, this place has been completely renovated to provide travelers with a unique overnight experience. The space has been defunct since the end of World War Two, and now spans nine square meters of living space. Seeing that the home’s ceiling is just two meters high, the design team had to create furniture that would work well within the small space. There’s a kitchen complete with plumbing, concrete walls found all throughout, and bunkbeds that line the wall of the living room, outfitted with storage space underneath. The furniture can all be tucked or slid away, and everything serves a double function to maximize the design. If you do want to spend some time outside, there’s a terrace built from wooden planks, perfect for stargazing after sundown.
