This innovative project, called Safe house, was designed by Polish architectural studio KWK Promes. The main priority of the owner was to provide the feeling of maximum security in their future house, and as a result we can see the modern fortress, which is hidden behind an impenetrable wall. At the same time, it’s a surprisingly beautiful open villa. The idea from KWK Promes: The house took the form of rectangular prism in which parts of the exterior walls are movable. When the house opens up to the garden, eastern and western side walls move towards the exterior fence creating a courtyard. After crossing the gate one has to wait in this safety zone before being let inside the house. In the same time, there is no risk of children escaping to the street area in an uncontrolled way while playing in the garden. The Safe House is an ideal place for those, who appreciate privacy and security. And the good point that this technology can be used for modern and traditional, single- and multi storeyed houses covered with roofs of different geometry.
This contemporary house is unique in many ways because it was modeled using the more environmentally involved micro design. It was created by parametric software that considered dozens of parameters. The unusual architecture is a response to the requirements to provide privacy from the neighbors and at the same time let in as much light as possible and encompass the views of Sydney Opera and Harbour Bridge. The name of the house comes from the moebius strip, the mathematical surface looking similar to the house’s external shape. shape The complex geometry of this house required the unusual construction process too. It would be extremely hard to build the structure like it is as a usual building – from basement to the roof; the Moebius house was assembled the way the car would be. The metal panels were exclusively manufactured on China and applied to the pre-built steel frame.
