The First Zombie-Proof House
A Polish architectural firm has designed the world’s first zombie-proof abode — the “Safe House”.
Built between 2005 and 2009, the house features Rubik’s Cube-type movable parts and folds in on itself completely at the end of the day to seal against outside threats.
“Every day the house acts in a similar way — it wakes up every morning to close up after dusk,” says architect Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes.
Located on the outskirts of Warsaw, the Safe House has just one entrance, on the second floor, connected by a drawbridge.
For extra security, after crossing the bridge, visitors have to wait within a safety zone before being let into the rest of the house.
During the day, the house opens onto a garden and the movable walls change position to create a courtyard.
“There is no risk of children escaping to the street area in an uncontrolled way while playing in the garden,” says Mr Konieczny.
