House Transforms Into Impenetrable Fortress At The Push Of a Button

Even if you’re not a spy and your life is not in constant danger, you need to get a house like this! It’s something of a paradox — the house is light, airy and open to the outside thanks to numerous large windows, and yet almost impossible to break into. How is this done? Well, let’s explore this together.

Located in Warsaw, Poland, the 6,100 sq. ft. home designed by Polish architects KWK Promes features a “Safe House” button which activates movable concrete walls that can literally be opened or closed according to the needs of its residents.

When you are at home and feeling safe, you leave it open to the outside world.

But at the first sign of trouble — over aggressive trick-or-treaters, for example — you hit a button and the house goes into lockdown, turning from home into a fortress… literally!

When the fortress is in its closed state, a shutter slams down, protecting the front of the house, huge concrete slabs swing in to plug up the windows, and the drawbridge is hoisted up, turning the building into a big concrete cube.

In order to enter, security codes are required. Once those are entered, guests are led into the “safety zone,” an area bordered with concrete walls, before finally being let inside the house.

But who on earth would want such a home? Organized criminals? A drug lord? Nope. In fact, it is just an overly cautious homeowner on the outskirts of Warsaw.

I can appreciate the need for security when I’m not at home.

If I lived in this amazing slab of a house, I’d be able to take off for a couple weeks of vacation and not worry about burglars.

On the other hand, I would spend the entire time worrying about losing my keys.
