The Bunker

The Bunker is a unique studio designed by Mike Xavier and crafted by himself and Alexander James. It is a beautiful harmony of purpose and form. The Bunker is about the people… how they use the space, and was built to encourage flexibility and change depending on the mood.

Studio apartment living space designed for small space liviing
