This House Is Probably More Secure Than Most Nuclear Silos

What amazes me about Safe House—a Polish home designed by Kwl Promes Architects—is that it manages to be a beautiful family residence while offering a security level probably comparable to the White House's situation room. It borders paranoia.

Just go through the gallery and notice all the details: The bank vault-thick doors and windows; the retractable bridge that joins the house with the indoor swimming pool; the giant metal door that shuts all the house's front down (and serves as a movie projection screen, apparently).

And yet, despite being a fortress when it closes at night, it's retains a beautiful airy spirit while it is open to the world. [Kwk Promes viaFreshome]
