Ride Out the Apocalypse in the World's First Zombie-Proof House

Behold the imposing awesomeness of the world's first zombie-proof house!

When it comes to making a final stand against the hordes of the risen dead, practicality is paramount. Function must trump form if you want to avoid having your face chewed like an undercooked steak. But that doesn't necessarily mean you have to sacrifice aesthetics, and there's certainly nothing that says you can't have a nice view while you await the undead apocalypse.

Designed by Polish firm KWK Promes, the "Safe House" features an indoor swimming pool, a large, covered patio, a window-wall that opens onto a spacious second-floor balcony and provides a wonderful view, and a modern, attractive open-concept design. And when the zombies come, the whole thing essentially folds up into a giant, impenetrable block of concrete accessible only through a second-floor entrance protected by a rising drawbridge.


"The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security," the company wrote on its webpage, and it's not kidding. You nuke this place from orbit and maybe you'll get a peek inside, but anything less than that and you're probably just going to muss up the paint job. Of course, the ultimate anti-zombie abode isn't complete unless there's enough room in the basement for a multi-year supply of freeze-dried food and a couple of minigun emplacements on the roof, but this, I think, is a very good start.

Nope, This is!

And 5 says it works better than that technological failure ;)
Why? It has glass. Never hide in a building that has glass in a zombie apocalypse. Let alone a building with a glass outer wall!

Edit: I don't care if it folds up into a little concrete box, if you are caught with your pants down then your doomed.

I so want to live in a house like that!
Even if the whole.. Zombie thing might seem a bit childish, it's an awesome house.

:)

I MUST GET THIS HOUSE!

But can it stop creepers......

When I 1st read zombie proof house I was expecting a dimly lit bunker in a ground but this place looks like it might actually be a nice place to live

I'm not convinced. How do they KNOW it's Zombie proof? Eh? Have they tested it?

Oh my god...
That is actually quite a nice house too. I'd love to live there. Or maybe they'll design me a house for here in Perth... And build it. Haha, oh my god the looks on the neighbour faces would be hilarious.

At first I was like, there are too many windows!

But then I was all like, oh it turns into a giant block of concrete.

Pretty tight house.

that is so stupid and ridiculous....I WANT IT! lol. i wouldn't mind having a bad house like that.

Holy crap. They're not kidding. Screw zombies, that's never going to happen, this is a house fit for a supervillain!

And thus the Apocalypse began when researchers created zombies to test whether their zombie-proof design was effective in case a zombie apocalypse did in fact occur.

That house is a lot nicer that the missle silo i was thinking of, i wonder how much it costs...

The_root_of_all_evil:

Short answer yes, long answer this is the last test being the ones before resumed as big mess and big hole for clean-up.

That is a bit nicer than I expected.
*takes out check book*
Did you get a price on it?

Who needs Walnuts and and Sunflowers when you've got a house like that?

Perhaps they used Mormons.

It folds up into a concrete barrier. I suppose that kinda offsets the glass

I Likes It! I do think it would be useful in a zombie apocalypse but I'd have the only exit an underground tunnel which would lead a few miles away where there would be another identical safe house and the same thing would happen from there until you have a connecting, one-way, system of tunnels and safe houses (which are stocked with supplies) around the world, all of them would lock down at the same time though so the zombies can't get me form the other side.

Captcha: Following evicyc, sounds like a bad (or good) horror movie.

Be great for tornados too I bet.

So, Umbrella wasn't some big bad company! They were just trying to test a Zombie-Proof house by making real zombies, and then a bunch of stupid cops came in and broke everything and let it all out...

I feel bad for Umbrella now...

Did you miss the part where it transformers into a concrete bunker? Kinda the point if you read it...

Lol on your link though. But thats weakness is its windows, a bunker design is supperior.

Apocalypose?

I'd rather have the batcave though.

The garage door wall seems like an obvious weak point compared to the 1 foot thick concrete everywhere else.

That's exactly was I was thinking. A garage door can be easily broken into.

Can I suggest a basic underground bunker as the best place? Pretty boring but with properly secured entrances it will likely be ignored if not unassailable.

Want want want.

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

If I become rich...this is it right here

I will never understand the people on this website's complete love of zombies. It seems like anything zombie related makes a massive impact. On a side note, I predict that 5 posts will appear saying something along the lines of "What do you want in YOUR zombie-proof house"

(If you can't tell, I despise the love of zombies.)

So many Polish news lately! :D

Ill be spending a day on this in Minecraft.

How much is it? that's what I'd like to know

Unless the virus starts inside the house.

DUN DUN DUUUUUNNNNnnnn....

Pure...EPIC...Awesomeness

I assume you read the nothing and didn't finish looking at the pictures or you would have seen that the glass is covered up by what 2-3 feet of solid concrete? While it still is a nice temp shelter, it isn't a fortress of awesome such as my idea of having 5 inches of solid steel under the entire fortress with another foot of concrete on top of that and found 10 feet under the compound. Next the walls are 20 feet high and go 10 feet down so it connects with the metal underground. This way you can grow your crops and have no fear of a zombie digging under ground and coming up from below :) Finish with a fail proof dome structured cage that keeps everything from flopping inside from the sky. That is a good place to live.

And with the way the weather has been going lately in this country this house would've been a godsend.

Well all the windows had be skeptical of the whole thing, but I see they've taken care of that. Beyond the aforementioned need of a storage facility capable of holding the necessary supplies needed to survive, the main thing I thought of the whole thing was "I hope they have their own independent source of energy. Those lock-down systems don't run off air."
