Hunker down in the zombie-proof Safe House (pictures)
Raise the drawbridge, retract the walls, close the shutters, and put a few movies on in KWK Promes' Safe House as "Return of the Living Dead" plays out in your garden.
Castle and keep
Polish architecture firm KWK Promes built the boxy Safe House outside Warsaw in 2009, with little thought to the idea that it could serve as a refuge from zombies. With creepy cannibalistic attacks in the news, however, it seems a perfect hideaway because it can transform into a near-impregnable fortress.
Konieczny's clients wanted security above all, and the most striking feature of the house is its ability to transform. When the house enters closed mode, a drawbridge to the pool roof goes up, preventing outside access to the second floor.
The Safe House becomes a concrete block in closed mode, so while zombies can bay for brains outside, you'll be nice and cozy within.
"The whole building is a concrete monolith, while its mobile parts -- for the sake of considerable size -- are light steel trusses filled with mineral wool," KWK Promes says. "As a result, the building is perfectly insulated when closed."
