Real Designs To Help You Survive A Zombie Apocalypse

"The Safe House" designed by the architect Robert Konieczny at KWK Promes offers maximum security. When the house opens up to the garden, eastern and western side walls move towards the exterior fence creating a courtyard. After crossing the gate one has to wait in this safety zone before being let inside the house. When the house is closed (at night for example) the safe zone is limited to the house’s outline. In the daytime, as a result of the walls opening, it extends to the garden surrounding the house. Wide glazings behind the movable walls let the building acquire energy during the day (winter) or prevent the sun’s heat from going into the house (summer). At night, when the house is closed, the thick outer layer helps the building to accumulate the gained energy. Such a solution together with the hybrid heat system (most of the energy is gained from renewable sources – heat pump and solar systems supported with gas heating) and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery makes the house become an intelligent passive building.

Other features include:

  • Large shutters (all 2,8 m high, with a width ranging up to 3,5 m) and 
  • A drawbridge leading to the roof terrace above the swimming pool.
  • Enormous roll-down gate of 14 and 6 m also possible to function as a movie projection screen. 
  • All the movable elements are based on built-in electronic engines, that guarantee safe operation.
