Former Missile Silo in Kansas Turned Into a Survival Condo

In the US state of Kansas, an old missile silo has been converted into a survival condominium. The building was designed underground by engineer and software developer Larry Hall. The house is intended for wealthy educated people who need a place to live in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.

According to the creator, the condominium is the most elaborate structure ever built. The front door is made of armored steel filled with concrete and weighs 8 tons. The walls of the bunker are made of epoxy concrete, have a thickness of about 3 m, therefore they are able to protect against a nuclear strike. The bunker was built in 1960 to store nuclear missiles.

The building area is approximately 16,460 sq. m, it has 15 floors and goes 200 m deep. Accommodation is designed for 75 people. The bunker contains everything you need for a comfortable life: there are two-storey apartments on 7 floors, each of which has a kitchen, dining room, living room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The apartments have a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The windows are equipped with LED screens that simulate real ones and broadcast the view from the street.

The building houses a zoo, a climbing wall, a library, a room for classes and studies, a gym, a bar, a cinema, a medical center and a park for walking dogs. Inside there is a small water park that includes a saltwater pool and a slide with cascades. Also, the creators equipped a shooting room in case the residents want to practice shooting zombies.

There is a shop inside where you can buy fresh food. They plan to grow them in a bunker using hydroponics. Fish farming is also possible, for this an aquaculture system can be used.
