During the day, the Safe House looks like any modern residence — a cube structure with loads of glazing — but at night it transforms into a concrete fortress. Like something taken straight from The Purge, the home is surrounded by a solid barrier that also transforms into a holding pen for guests before they're granted entrance. All windows are protected by movable shutters, while the south wall is concealed by a roll-down gate which also doubles as a projection screen. When it's safe enough for a swim, the pool pavilion is accessed by an electronic drawbridge.
