Safe House

By Gerard @presurfer
Safe House
Located on the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland, 'Safe House' by architectural office KWK Promes is a two-storey residential house that aims to provide a feeling of maximum security for the residents.
True to its name, the most distinguishable element of the design is the moveable exterior wall components that allow the house to be completely closed to its environment or open and connected to the rural landscape.The Presurfer
