This May Look Like An Abandoned Bunker In The Woods, But What's Inside Is Beyond Awesome.

Can you imagine spending your vacation in a bunker from World War II? Although it sounds unappealing, one architect put a sleek finish on one abandoned Dutch defense bunker, turning it into a place of comfort and relaxation. 

From outside, it doesn’t look like much.

The space is small, but extremely functional. It sleeps up to five people and features wood-paneled storage and modern lighting that have turned this old war bunker into a cozy and contemporary vacation getaway.

No piece of furniture has only one use. Bunk beds are used for sitting and sleeping, and these stools can function as seats, coffee tables, nightstands, or even stairs.

Outside is a floating wooden deck, perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Its open-air concept is a great contrast to the underground bunker.

The kitchen is bare bones, but contains the plumbing and cooking accessories needed for simple meals and cleaning.
