Zombie Proof House: Don’t Forget an Exit Strategy

Modern architecture for a modern, scary time. Home design taken to extreme, gritty reality and the strictest building codes: making it zombie proof.

The “Safe House” is designed by polish architectural firm KWK promes. It’s a concrete structure with multiple collapsible panels and roll top doors. The courtyard also has a retractable fence.

The structure is a concrete monolith, and its movable components are composed of light steel trusses filled with mineral wool to ensure insulation.  All exterior surfaces are clad with cement-bonded particleboards, then painted with a dark wood stain.

 

The house is designed with only a retractable second-floor drawbridge as its entry. There are several sliding glass doors at ground level, but these will be secured when the panels are in place. Though a secure drawbridge entry is ideal in keeping out Zeds, one must also have an effective and well guarded exit, or a difficult time will be had leaving out the main entrance.

Several options come to mind: an underground, distant egress, or expanding upon the existing rooftop deck.

    Nice. Only if that house didn’t cost 1 mil. Lol. I’m impressed with the site, good job.

    Plenty of room for the gimp. This house and a 10 foot tall 3 foot thick wall around 10 acres and you just might survive the Z-A and want to live to tell no one about it.

    Can that place take a tornado hit or other natural disasters? Just asking before I take out a loan.

    […] Zombie Proof House: Some photos and descriptions of a total zombie apocalypse surival pad. This place looks like it’d be about impossible for slow or fast zombies. It looks like it could hold its own against even armed raiders (rat-bastards that they are). […]
