BUNKERHOTEL

Overnachtingsplekken voor fietstoeristen in de Biesbosch

.
Accomodating to the threat of the German invasion, the World War II bunker shelter integrates with a climatic responsive architecture, in tune with a contemporary threat.

The building envelope consists of a smart folding surface, organizing access, interior space, outdoor terraces, views, and functional and climatic aspects. The air within the bunker (year-round 5°C) cools the Bunkerhotel in the Summer in combination with a self-shading façade. In the winter the PV-cells act as a Trombe wall diverting the sun-heated air between glass and concrete bunker to the shelter floor. The Bunkerhotel invites its visitors to enjoy the landscape with an awareness of history and the ecological challenges of today.
