The First Ever ‘Zombie-Proof’ Home
This garrison styled home, dubbed the “Safe House”, is located on the outskirts of Warsaw Poland which was designed and built by KWK Promes from 2005 to 2009 and is essentially a 6,100 square foot concrete cube when the house enters ‘sleep mode’, folding into itself and sealing the occupants safely inside behind its thick concrete walls.
The only common entrance into this down-home stronghold is on the second floor, across a lowering drawbridge, and then through a safety zone where visitors need to be screened then “approved” before being allowed to enter into the main interior of the concrete habitat. There are walls which slide out from the side of the house towards the exterior walls creating a courtyard/garden area, and these walls can surround the property like a domestic Bastille. The colossal roll-down-garage-like-door made from white anodized aluminum doubles as a movie projection screen when it is fully closed plus it seals the patio completely inside, and the windows feature thick concrete slabs for shutters which, like a bank vault, protects the glass inside the windows. This home even comes complete with an indoor swimming pool; zombies roaming about feasting on the living and roving gangs abound looting and pillaging everything in sight, so why not let your guard down and relax with a swim melting away your troubles.
Since there would be a lack of man made electricity during a zombie outbreak, the safe house runs mostly off renewable energy sources like solar collection and a heat pump, which are also both supported by gas heat. During the winter, the glazing behind the walls collects energy from the sun, and during the summer is keeps the heat from entering the home.
The house was sold recently but the selling price is being kept a tight secret.
