Bunker home Plan B is designed to outlast the apocalypse – in style

This concrete concept home by Sergey Makhno is designed as a safe space to weather future world crises.

Renders of the bunker home show a space that’s filled with light and plants. Artificial creepers hang down into bedrooms, trees are surrounded by glass walls, and carefully placed lighting replicates the feeling of daylight spilling in.

It all helps to relieve the thick concrete walls sunk 15 metres into the ground, creating a hideout for future lockdown situations or other world events.

According to Makhno, Plan B can continue to function even when isolated – relying on its water treatment system, generator, ventilation system, and well. Two spiral staircases mean social distancing can be maintained, and the unbuilt home also includes a space for disinfection.

Guests missing real life can turn on huge screens to show images of nature, or head to the garden room to tend to fruit and veg. Makhno has even taken care to add elements of the outside world to Plan B’s pool, which is lit with green lights to create a feeling of being inside a grotto.
