Architectural designer John Pawson has transformed a second-world-war telecommunication bunker into an art and furniture museum in Berlin's Kreuzberg neighbourhood.

The Feuerle Collection is a private museum hosting the contemporary art, Imperial Chinese furniture, and ancient Southeast Asian art collections of Désiré Feuerle.

Pawson's first major project in Berlin, it features exhibition spaces with the designer's characteristically minimalist style. "It is difficult to think of places more charged with atmosphere than these monumental concrete structures," said Pawson.
