THE INSPIRATION FILLED PEOPLE OF KWK PROMES, AN ARCHITECTURAL FIRM BASED IN WARSAW, POLAND, HAVE CREATED AN IMPREGNABLE HOUSE
When purchasing a house, there are key aspects one has to keep in mind. The location of the house is one of the most important things, whether the house is in the seclusion of suburbia or based in the wild of city life. The second aspect would be the ambiance or feng shui of the place, is it suitable for you, is it comfortable enough for you to live in and the third aspect would be the price, how much green will you spend on your dream house or whether it will empty your bank account. But above all else, to some or most people, security around and inside the house is the most crucial point of them all.
The inspiration filled people of KWK Promes, an architectural firm based in Warsaw, Poland have created an impregnable house, known as Safe House, a dark grey, concrete covered, modern style masterpiece of true security. The house, with just a flip of a switch can transform a boring and gloomy looking piece of brick to an eye-popping, glass covered mansion. That’s right; the concrete windows that surround the house can be opened and closed electronically by only one button.
When a guest entered the main gate, he or she would have to wait for a moment as the space between the gate and the front side of the house becomes a “safety zone” as the two gate doors close and two side 15m-long aluminum walls emerge on both wings, protecting the garden part of the house. A definite must for meeting unexpected acquaintances, as the owner of the house can do a scan or a background check on the guests.
When it’s in an opened state, the house allows natural light to enter, as it is covered with glass walls from top to bottom. Hardwood flooring is the choice of the house while very modern-esque and avant-garde furniture smother the mansion. Its dining tables can be found inside and outside of the house, the outside dining table on the patio offers a romantic dining experience with an excellent panorama of green pastures. It has an indoor swimming pool separated from the main house, it can be entered via a glass tunnel and a draw bridge to get to the balcony on the top of the indoor pool when the switch button is activated.
The house is simply mystifying, it offers the luxury of being a bachelor pad, but it can be turned into a nice and cozy family home, where kids, after a night sleep, can run to the garden, play some ball, while mom busy making breakfast in the extraordinary kitchen and dad taking a quick swim in the separated swimming pool before he goes to work. Whatever the choice is, rest assured, it allows you to feel at ease, no worries about intruders or any wild living coming inside the house, because how can they?
That’s the whole reason why KWK Promes built the house, yes, it offers a luxurious, stunning, transparent glass covered, contemporary house, but the most important piece that makes this the Safe House that it is, is the futuristic, flawless security system that comes with the manse. Hailing from Poland, KWK Promes opted to put the 6,100 square feet, cubicle fortress in a small, secluded village on the outskirt of Warsaw to better demonstrate the protection measure of the grey shelter.
