WW2 bunker turned to green energy centre


A Second World War bunker in Hamburg, Germany, has been converted into a sustainable energy plant and visitor centre.

Designers IBA Hamburg restored the ruined concrete shell, which had remained unoccupied since the end of the war.

Working with German energy firm Hamburg Energie, the company transformed the bunker into a plant that provides heat and electricity to the surrounding neighbourhood.

“After standing empty for more than sixty years, followed by a seven-year project development and construction phase, this war monument has been transformed into a sign of the dawn of a climate-friendly future,” said IBA director Uli Hellweg.
