If you're a spy and your life is constantly in danger, you need to get a home like this! Designed by architecture firm KWK Promes, the "Safe House" is a two-level fortress that provides a high level of security for its owners.

Located in Warsaw, Poland, the 6,100 sq. ft. home features movable concrete walls that can literally be opened or closed according to the needs of its residents. In order to enter, security codes are required. Once those are entered, guests are led into the "safety zone," an area bordered with concrete walls, before finally being let inside the house.

When the fortress is in its closed state, it turns into a big concrete cube. When it's open, a draw bridge lowers, connecting the home to the indoor swimming pool. This house is also equipped with movable walls, mobile shutters, and a rising aluminum gate, which gives off an expansive garden view. Since the entire home transforms with built in electronic engines, everything opens and closes with just a touch of a button.
