The Hamburg Bunker
Originally a shelter for a neighboring hospital, the Hamburg Bunker has been repurposed into a penthouse apartment. The bunker was built in 1939 at the beginning of WWII. Its interior was peeled back to the handmade concrete frame. The raw material is now the key feature, lining the walls, floors, and ceiling while accents of marble and bronze provide a modern contrast. A glass-encased bedroom looks out to the open living area, furnished with a mixture of vintage and custom pieces. On the southern side, large glazed panels fill the monolithic space with natural light and affording views of the city.
