We all know about a panic room, but a team of architects literally thought inside the box to come up with the ultimate safety zone for anyone harbouring apocalyptic thoughts.

Doors and windows are sealed from the outside world using powerful concrete panels, and the only way to get in our out once the place has been shut up is via a second-floor entrance protected by a rising drawbridge.
Rather redundantly, the property is also surrounded by a wall. Polish architectural firm KWK Promes, the architects behind the design, wrote on its website: 'The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security.'
Anyone still feeling threatened after the Safe House closes up might want to think about professional help.
The Safe House designed by Polish Design Firm KWK Promes under master architect Robert Konieczny is a house fit for Batman or at least someone who wants to survive zombies or a nuclear apocalypse. The 6100 sq. ft Safe House is encapsulated in concrete walls.
The walls can be configured to the owner’s desire and once safe inside, only a security code can open the home that also has an inner safety zone.
The reason this private home is an architectural feat is that every part of it moves; the concrete walls, inner walls, shutters and aluminum entrance gate.
Being so large, one might wonder how these huge panels of concrete are moved. It’s all remote controlled baby! The Safe House was just nominated for a World Architecture Festival Award
