Can a home be elegant, while also giving off a kind of cool, apocalyptic bunker vibe? Yes. Yes it can. The Golf House, designed by architect Luciano Kruk, is (literal) concrete proof.
It’s not located on the set of The Walking Dead, as you might have assumed, but nestled among the dunes of Costa Esmeralda, Argentina.
Built as a vacation home, the spacious residence requires minimal maintenance and upkeep.
The inside of the home maintains the same rugged feel of the outside: the walls and ceilings are wood-panneled and the floor is concrete.
Warmer wood tones, light-coloured furniture and fur throws (also very end-of-times) are integral to allowing the Golf House to feel like more a cabin than a bunker.
Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure that you never feel too closed off from the gorgeous natural surroundings. Every space in the home has a distinct indoor/outdoor atmosphere.
One of the coolest features in the home is the staircase. At once a focal point of the entire main floor and an optical illusion, it brings even more artistic flair into an already architecturally fascinating home.
Every deck was built with quebracho (a very hard kind of natural wood), which helps to lower the sun incidence over the rooms they lie on by sitting slightly detached from the concrete.
