Located on the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland, ‘safe house’ by Katowice-based architectural  office kwk promes is a two-story 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 movable 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.
