If you’re planning a quick European weekend getaway with your partner, why not spend it in a Hamburg Bunker? Ok put it out like this the idea doesn’t sound very appealing I must admit. This is not just some sinister concrete slab war bunker as you can imagine. Thomas the owner completely renovated this raw bunker into a sophisticated New York loft style apartment with 4- meter high ceilings. The carefully chosen pieces of furniture such as the Saarinen table, Arne Jacobsen chairs, Cassina couch with all the details and fittings add that designer sophistication and visual warmth to counterbalance the raw concrete. Located on the top floor, you will also be able to enjoy the views with a drink from the 2 large balconies looking towards the new opera house ‘Elbphilharmonie’, the churches, and the cranes of the harbour. Special requests can be made such as a particular wine or champagne, or taking care of reservations. You can book the apartment with welcomebeyond.com
TRD: That’s my kind of bunker….sounds weird doesn’t it?
Did you know: In 2007 the German government decided to sell around 2000 bunkers privately, which had architects and investors create new spaces for all kind of purposes.
