The old military bunker was re-designed into a country house. Despite the modest size of the shelter (11 quare meters only), it is a perfect place for relaxing during the weekends.

Since the bunker is located in the green array Fort Vuren, its architects arranged an open terrace beside the house. There you can relax on the open air. The size of this terrace is the same as the shelter square. Thus you can compare these areas to estimate the real housing size.

There is also another former military bunker, located in Germany which was transformed into a green power Energy Bunker.
