Repurposing Old Military Structures: From nightclubs to climbing walls to water parks, you name it.
Instead of leaving abandoned military structures to rot, why not put them to good use? These structures were built to last and people are getting creative with ways in which they can be repurposed, transforming these reminders of past war into beacons of modern recreation.
Flak towers in Germany, constructed on Adolf Hitler’s orders during World War II, have been reclaimed as climbing walls. An airship hangar at an abandoned Soviet military base south of Berlin has been turned into a water park. A Russian bunker has been turned into a nightclub and restaurant. A former Cold War torpedo facility in London has been transformed into a gorgeous private residence. An air raid shelter in Berlin constructed during World War II is now a luxury apartment complex.
There are many more exciting ways in which old structures are being repurposed, and through repurposing, their land value has increased exponentially. Through innovation and imagination, these structures represent the past, present, and future of sustainable construction, and an incredible opportunity for Nature Partners to connect clients seeking unique venues with these places.
