safe house

located on the outskirts of warsaw, poland, 'safe house' by katowice-based 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. while the initial read
of the design might seem confining, the house, when in its open state, offers immense
transparency while establishing a strong relationship to the site.
