Wikileaks Servers get a Villain-/Hero-Worthy Hideout

This headquarters could easily make any list of best hideouts, like the top-five compilation by The Film Cynics, which includes the ranks of the Batcave and the Fortress of Solitude. The Pionen White Mountain project, by Albert France-Lanord Architects converted a 1,200 sqm Cold War bunker into a secure home for some of Wikileaks' data.

The shelter is located 30 m below Stockholm, and the client, Bahnhof, houses servers and offices below the thick granite walls and behind 1.64-inch metal doors.
