New breed of safe houses
Designed by Polish architects KWK Promes, the 6,100 square foot “Safe House” transforms from a gorgeous modern home into a concrete bunker with high tech security features.
“In order to penetrate the Safe House you would need to match all the required security entrance codes,” Knstrct.com notes. “Upon entrance, one would wait in the ‘safety zone’, an area bordered with concrete walls, before being let inside the house. When the home is in its closed state, it is reminiscent of a large concrete Rubik’s Cube. When in its open state, a draw bridge lowers, connecting the home to the indoor swimming pool, movable walls open, mobile shutters come up, and a rolling aluminum gate raises opening the home to an expanse of garden views. The entire home transforms with built in electronic engines, which means the house opens and closes with the touch of a button!”
