The Cybertruck-Based CyberHouse Will Keep You Safe After the Zombie Apocalypse

If the end of times comes and only one car will survive, it will be one of Tesla’s Cybertrucks. At least, according to a Russian architecture firm.

Modern House should ring a bell with Tesla fans, since they imagined the perfect companion for the Cybertruck in January this year: a CyberHouse that would double as a bunker for when the world ends. This could be either by means of a zombie invasion or a natural cataclysm, and the bunker would withstand both – and then some.

That concept was smaller than the one we’ll discuss today, because it served an entirely functional purpose. It still had some elements of luxury, such as a sundeck to work on your tan, just in case the apocalypse never came – and presumably so you don’t get frustrated while waiting for it.

Still, it was made to save you from the worst of the worst: with an incorporated garage for your Cybertruck, which would be ideal for running around to secure provisions, and slanted walls (to prevent the brain-eating critters from climbing onto your sundeck and ruining happy tan-hour), it also had bulletproof windows and was entirely self-sufficient. It even included an air- and water-purifying systems, wind turbines and solar panels.

With room for 6 or 7 people, that first CyberHouse concept was meant to get you through the worst days of mankind. Now that the apocalypse is over, it’s time to think bigger. So Alex Wyzhevsky of the same Russian architecture design agency has another idea: enter the CyberHouse Life.

This is actually a different concept, albeit of the same name. It’s bigger and fancier, but also more luxurious since it no longer has to help you survive zombies, hurricanes or radioactive blasts. It still has bulletproof windows, because it’s always better to be safe than sorry, and it still has room for at least one Cybertruck, but other than that, it’s way glitzier.

Wyzhevsky imagines a future in which “the best representatives of mankind from all countries” are living in houses like this one. Spanning 1,370-square-meters, it incorporates a garage and two stories, and a floating deck on the water. It’s built on the side of the mountain, cascading towards the water like a river of concrete, steel and mirrored glazing.

“After the outbreak of the zombie virus on Earth, dark times have come, the borders of countries have been erased, and states no longer exist,” Modern House says of the latest concept. “Chaos, devastation, agony are everywhere. Only those who were ready for such a turn of events survived and took care of a reliable shelter. An important role was played by private bunker houses. As one of the most reliable shelters, CyberHouse has established itself.”

After the apocalypse, “[architecture] has become more comfortable and environmentally friendly, and the use of new materials and technologies has allowed us to take a different look at our usual living spaces, translating them into the highest possible level of comfort,” the design agency says.

The only way in which Modern House mentions this massive building being environmentally friendly is by having it take shape of the cliffside. That is to say, instead of cutting into rock to make platforms on which to build the house, they imagined it embedded into it.

Luxury amenities would include various open terraces / sundecks, panoramic views, yoga and wellness rooms, meditation areas and outdoor recreation, and an open hearth. Unlike with the Cybertruck-inspired bunker, Modern House doesn’t offer as many specifics.

But it does say this much: “This architecture is easily adaptable to any climatic and natural features of the landscape.” Which is good news, because it’s a sign that they’re not discriminating based on location. The only criteria that will work to differentiate between who dies eaten by zombies / killed by natural or man-made disaster and who gets to get their chakras realigned on a fancy sundeck is money. Turns out this never ever changes.
