If you’ve read our zombie survival guide, you’ll know how important a stronghold is to survival. Whether you decide to stay in your existing home or seek out refuge elsewhere, it’s helpful to see how others are building out their zombie proof homes. Here is some inspiration from around the world for your apocalypse stronghold.
Location: Warsaw, Poland
Safe House was designed by Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes in 2009. This black, cuboid structure features movable exterior walls that open and close. The movable steel walls are insulated with mineral wool to keep occupants warm in winter. When all the doors are opened, Safe House has stunning views of the yard and outside world.
Another feature of the house is the outer gate which provides an extra layer of security in zombie attacks.
Location: Mudgee, New South Wales, Australia
Permanent Camping was designed by Casey Brown and is the most charming of the zombie proof homes on this list. This Australian home features roofs that close down to protect the first floor of the house. Permanent Camping features panoramic views that stretch for hundreds of miles.
Another great feature of the house is its water collecting abilities. Water is collected through the roof and shuttled off to the water tank south of the building.
New Bivouac Gervasutti
Location: Courmayeur, Italy
New Bivouac Gervasutti is a solar powered mountain cabin in Italy. Designed by LEAPFactory, this prefabricated refuge can withstand extreme high-altitude conditions. Gervasutti was built with the help of helicopters and can only be enjoyed by climbers willing to make the 9,300 foot climb to the summit.
Location: Krakow, Poland
Ark House is the second home on this list designed by Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes. This barn-style structure sits on a slope that is also home to horses and sheep. The most striking feature of Ark House is its foundation, which is designed like a bridge to allow rain to flow through.
Only one corner of the house touches the ground. This corner features a drawbridge which can be raised and lowered, and serves as the main entrance. The underside of the house acts as a storage area for firewood and maintenance equipment. Sliding exterior walls can be moved to protect inhabitants from zombies and looters.
Location: Somewhere near Savannah, Georgia, United States
Dubbed “The Facility,” this underground nuclear bunker sits 45 feet below ground. Originally built by the U.S. government in 1969, it underwent a full renovation in 2012. The 14,000-square-foot floor plan boasts 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The structure can supposedly withstand a 20-kiloton nuclear explosion. Interested in buying it for the zombie apocalypse? The Facility was last on the market in 2015 for $17.5 million.

What an interesting topic and a showcase of high-tech architecture! I am calling the Ark House because I can’t definitely live in a basement or a bunker.

It is always great to have your options open. I did not know about some of these houses. Probably a year ago they looked like crazy house ideas but now with everything that is going on a zombie apocalypse looks more possible than before hahaha
said Walmart,Costco or a big Box Store go or supermarket. Maybe I’m wrong but at least it doesn’t have any windows.
The last thing we need now is zombies, however if I had to choose it would be New Bivouac Gervasutti for me
This is a cool post! These homes are awesome.
some of these are pretty impressive. i’m scared of heights so that one on a cliff is out for sure lol.
Ark House and Safe House are so modern! I love the design! I hope I can have one in the future!
The Ark House and the Facility were the most homes to me! This is a very cool post. Thank you for sharing!
these are funky for sure! the bunker house makes me think of the blast to the past movie w/ alicia silverstone. no? wouldn’t it be so smart of a hotel team to buy it and turn it into a b&b?
haha. this post is so cute! a zombie-proof home for zombie apocalypse…
Wow this is a very interesting topic. I love to see the special architecture nowadays, but haven’t thought of a house for preventing zombie. Haha this is a very nice post, and the houses looked cool too.
The Facility is WHERE IT’s AT! hahah! It’s awesome!!!! However, without any sunlight coming through windows, I might get depressed in there!
Loved learning about different structures. The Ark House is pretty cool1 Thanks for sharing 🙂
These homes are pretty awesome. Though I don’t think we need to be concerned about Zombies. Are they COVID-19 proof?
