The Vivos Underground Survival Shelter will accommodate up to 200 people in post apocalyptic luxury. With the end of the world apparently scheduled for December 31, 2012, there’s sure to be a number of opportunistic companies looking to cash in on the upcoming apocalypse. Aside from some unspecified end of the world scenario brought about by the end of the Mayan calendar, the shelters will also be built to survive the stock standard reasons for the apocalypse such as nuclear war and collision with an asteroid. Each fully self-contained Vivos shelter complex will accommodate a community of 172 – 200 people in spacious quarters for up to one year or autonomous survival to “ride out the potential events.” The airtight shelters are designed to survive virtually any catastrophe, or threat scenario including natural disasters, a nuclear blast, chemical and biological weapons, or even just good ol’ social anarchy.
The US$10 million luxury Vivos shelter design is based on a spoke cluster of 10 radiating residential wings surrounding a two story, 60 foot diameter central dome.
Each Vivos facility is equipped with its own internal power generation system, backup battery banks, deep water wells, biological, chemical and radiation air filtration systems, sewage disposal systems, abundant food and clothing storage, security devices, medical equipment and supplies and critical support equipment including off-road vehicles – presumably for doing battle with mutant road warriors once the dust settles topside.
All shelters include complete and fully furnished living quarters, with semi-private bedrooms, deluxe bathrooms, kitchen and dining areas, spacious lounges and meeting areas, computers, theater electronics, exercise equipment, well stocked educational and entertainment materials, an urgent medical and dental care center, security facilities with a detention area, vaults for valuables and munitions, a communications center, laundry facilities, a repair shop, and abundant storage areas for food, fuel, water, medicine, supplies and a wardrobe inventory with a large selection of comfortable clothing and footwear in all sizes.
Prior to any engagement of a shelter the Vivos Group will provide operational oversight of each Owner’s Association for ongoing maintenance, replenishment, security, monitoring, surveillance, notifications and advisories. Vivos plans to complete construction and commissioning of the remaining network of underground community shelters within time for the possible end of the world on December 31, 2012.
Spaces in the bunkers are likely to be in the US$50,000 price range and so far over 1,000 applications have been received to reserve a place.


In the past we took a brief look at Containers of Hope during our feature on shipping container homes, but this remarkable project by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture definitely deserves more attention.
The structure is composed of two shipping containers that are raised above the ground by some sturdy concrete column foundations which give the dwelling a sense of permanence. Living in a metal and glass house in a tropical climate might sound quite uncomfortable but this shipping container home makes use of a highly effective cross ventilation system which passively cools the house. To continue the thriftily sustainable theme of Containers of Hope, this angled roof section is made up of the metal sheeting that was cut out of the walls of the shipping containers to make space for the windows.
Sure the dollar would go further on a build on Costa Rica, and the family constructed the shipping container as a self-build, but this is even cheaper than the cost of social housing in Costa Rica and I should imagine provides a living environment of a much higher standard. Set against trees and mountains of the Montana landscape this contemporary prefab home connects to its picturesque surroundings both with porosity and materiality. One such company is Vivos, which envisions a network of 20 underground shelters located near major cities across the U.S. The complex includes community gathering areas and private suites providing comfortable accommodations with about 100 square feet per person – well above the 40 and 50 square feet minimums advised by the Red Cross and FEMA respectively for long-term underground shelter. Then, once a facility is occupied and under lock down the co-owners will elect a board and take over autonomous operation and management of their particular facility. Varying in size, these shelters will be completely retrofitted with state of the art security, mechanical, electrical, filtration and air handling systems and will be the first shelters in the network due to come on line this year.


So, if you’re the overly cautious, paranoid or just plain gullible type, you might want to get along to the Vivos site where there is a handy doomsday clock counting down to New Years Eve 2012 to let you know just how long you’ve got to get your pennies together. Built on a budget of just $40,000, this creative dwelling allowed the Peralta family to live debt free in their ideal setting: surrounded by fields, their horses, and just 20 minutes from San Jose, Costa Rica. The containers were arranged parallel to one another and then shifted horizontally to form a more dynamic floor plan and maximise the views over the surrounding landscape. It’s intelligent, well-thought-out design measures such as this that enabled Benjamin Garcia Saxe to design this housing solution with the extraordinarly low budget of $40,000.
The prefabricated modular nature of the building has left its natural beauty and landscape untouched. The humble structure is made up of 5 modular sections, then the modules were assembled and the new home established within the day. A system of hydraulic operable screens on the facade encloses porch spaces and outdoor patio.
