The Bunker Pavilion is a Reclaimed Refuge with Contemporary Comforts

You'd likely curious about the Bunker Pavilion the moment that you approach it. It presents itself as a pretty typical looking subterranean shelter; however, adjacent to the weather-worn concrete entryway, there is a delightful deck that looks quite out of place.

The reason for this arrangement is because the wartime refuge has been converted into a fully functional and quite comfortable vacation home, complete with a contemporary kitchen and bunk beds to sleep four people. Warm wood was used to construct custom furnishings that make the most of the close-packed space. The Bunker Pavilion was initially created as a design stunt, but the B-ild project is now available for rent by guests to this part of rural Netherlands. Just think about the potential for adapting all sorts of abandoned structures such as this.
