You will feel as secure as can be while relaxing in this piece of architectural elitism.
Located in a small village outside of Warsaw, Poland, the Safe house was designed by architectural firm KWK Promes with the aim to provide its residents a feeling of maximum security. Completed in 2009, the two story concrete box residence offers approximately 570 square meters (6,100 square feet) of spacious living areas, floor to ceiling windows, panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, and a beautiful indoor swimming pool.
“The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security” begins the designers’ website in the summary of the structure. Who wouldn’t feel safe in a concrete rectangle that folds in upon itself to become completely sealed? Even the windows are covered with a slab of concrete when the structure is on nap time.
