Of course, the CyberHouse can also serve as permanent residence to the discerning Cybertruck owner, as they seem to like big, shiny, angular, unfriendly constructions. They only have to furnish the sundeck accordingly and add a pool, and they’re set for a life of luxury built around their most recent car purchase.
That said, the CyberHouse stands out for its increased level of protection and was built with that in mind. It’s a bunker, but built above ground and with all the luxuries that same discerning Cybertruck owner might want – and can afford. It’s a multi-story structure that is meant to withstand zombie attacks and radioactive contamination, but also hurricanes and earthquakes.
Encased by reinforced concrete walls covered in steel to match the Cybertruck, the CyberHouse has airlock doors and bulletproof windows with metallic blinds. The walls are slanted, which means the undead won’t be able to climb their way to the sundeck, so the residents can taunt them from high above while working on their tans. That is something architects actually thought of.
Speaking of residents, the 984-square-foot construction could comfortably accommodate 6 or 7 people, all of whom would have to be “in top shape, stress-resistant and trigger-happy,” according to Modern House. Otherwise they stand no chance of surviving whatever evil befell our planet.
The CyberHouse, in turn, would be completely self-sufficient, including air and water purification systems, solar panels and wind turbines. The design firm imagines the people inside could live in top conditions for up to one year without the need to come out for supplies.
“In developing the CyberHouse, we [also] took as a basis the principle of building modern nuclear submarines, consisting of several... protective shells,” Modern House lead architect Alex Wizhevsky tells CNN in an email. “The multi-layered enclosure proposed in our project provides maximum safety from various disasters.”
“I focused not only on maximum safety, but also on comfortable autonomous living in this house,” Wizhevsky adds. “Indeed, for (certain) potential owners there is no serious need for protection; most likely they will simply like the design and autonomy of this project.”
Wizhevsky says the CyberHouse is merely a concept as of the time of writing, but he is convinced the future of architecture will look something like it, much like the future of the auto industry will have a lot in common with Musk’s Cybertruck. Or as the saying goes, if you build it, they will come. Whoever “they” are, they will have to be loaded.
He is not the only one to think this way. Late in 2019, design firm Lars Büro delivered a (viral) concept for a construction also built around Tesla’s still-controversial electric truck. Called Cybunker, it was designed to serve as a garage for the Cybertruck or be converted into an actual home that could double as a bunker in case the world came to an abrupt – but not entirely unpredictable – end.

CyberHouse . The new Tesla model unveiled by Ilon Musk left many scratching their chins. MODERN HOUSE architects suggest a scenario under which the weirdness of Cybertruck's engineering and design makes sense. . ...A zombie virus has finally broken out at a top-secret biolab. Decades of warnings from pop culture were not enough. Mindless but determined hordes of undead roam the countryside, devouring town after unsuspecting town. What do survivors have in common? They are, of course, in top shape, stress-resistant and trigger-happy, but there is a deeper secret to their success - a fortified abode and a nasty rover car... . After a post-apocalyptic pickup truck was presented to humanity this November, MODERN HOUSE decided to take care of the home castle. . The Cyberhouse is an architectual concept in line with Ilon Musk's. . It is a self-sufficient multi-level bunker designed for living in a range of extreme conditions, from a Z Day to a nuclear fallout. . The slanted walls of reinforced concrete and high-strength steel keep away environmental shocks, mechanical and electromagnetic. Shielded windows, metallic blinds and airlocks add to the security. . An elevator to bring up the Cybertruck is located in the middle of the atrium, insolated through a glass cover. . 6 or 7 people can wait for it all to blow over here in comfort, taunting zombies outside in complete personal safety. .
