A zombie-proof ‘safe-house’ to survive the apocalypse

on May 19 2011 8:21 AM

A Polish architectural firm has designed the world’s first zombie-proof house called the “safe House”, reports said.

The house is not really inspired by the walking dead but has got plenty of interest as the world celebrates its fifth annual zombie awareness month in May.

The house features Rubik’s cube-type movable parts and folds in on itself completely at the end of the day to seal off outside dangers.

Architect Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes said the house will act in a similar way every day. It will become active every morning and close up after dark. It has only one entrance which is on the second floor connected by a drawbridge.

For extra security measures, the visitors, after crossing the bridge, will have to wait within a safety zone before being let into the house. During daytime the house will open onto a garden and the changeable walls will move to produce a courtyard.

May is considered as the official Zombie Awareness Month by the Zombie Research Society. Many films leading to the evolution of the modern zombies are set in the month of May, from the original Night of the Living Dead in 1968 to its remake Dawn of The Dead in 2004.

The Safe House, which was shortlisted for WAF (World Architectural Festival) awards in Barcelona, is located on the outskirts of Warsaw.
