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."
