If you want a house that provides the feeling of security, then take a look at the Safe House. This residence is siting on a 6,100 sqf plot at the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland, and was designed by KWK Promes.
The house takes the form of a cube and presents a lot of inventive features such as sliding walls and shutters, a roll-down gate and a system that allows the building to acquire energy during the day, which can be later used. At night this huge house looks like a sealed space, but when it opens up the eastern and western side walls create a courtyard. Moreover, all the movable elements are based on built-in electronic engines, which means that you can operate them safely.
Not only does the house provide safety, but it is also a modern place with open spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows that allow natural light to flood the rooms. Having all this and an indoor pool, the Safe House is an inspiring residence. With a home like this you can sleep peacefully.
