Dutch architect UN Studio has posted a slideshow documenting its Tea House on Bunker - a pavilion constructed over two 1936 military bunkers at Vreeswijk in the Netherlands.

Part of a new business and sporting complex, the pavilion is surrounded by polo fields and stables on land that was once part of the New Dutch Water line of defence - a 85km-long system of bunkers, dykes and water management systems built in the nineteenth century to rapidly flood land in the event of an invasion.
