If you have an unlimited budget, which architect would you like to invite to design your home? For Vladislav Doronin, a Russian billionaire and CEO of OKO Group, who is also a real estate company, Zaha Hadid, who is good at converting fantasy images into real existence and giving the building a sexy streamlined "architect", is undoubtedly The best building trader in his heart. Unlike Zaha Hadid's other public design projects, as the only private residential design in his lifetime, this stylish villa, hidden in the forest town of Barvikha, Moscow, also has Zaha's striking architectural dance lines, but more appropriate to describe it. It is like a spaceship that landed in the world.
Capital Hill Residence full of future technology (Capital Hill Residence is the only private residential design project that Zaha Hadid participated in during her lifetime, she died in 2016, and then was built by the construction team partner and partner Patrik Schumacher). The exterior of the white building is surrounded by lush green forests. Although the area is known as the Russian version of Beverly Hills, Vladislav Doronin has spent a lot of money to buy vast land and deliberately avoid the sight of the neighbors. With a strong focus on privacy, he hopes that Zaha Hadid can create a house that does not interfere with anyone and can "get up in the morning and open his eyes to see the blue sky"; and because the surrounding forest is 20 meters high, in order to achieve This requirement, the highest point of the house must at least break through this height.
Unlike the construction of a spacious but low-end villa, the most distinctive feature of the Capital Hill Residence itself is its mobility, which not only coordinates with the adjacent hillside landscape, but also focuses on satisfying customers. The need to put the tower concept into the building to create a top floor space that rises to the sky and is 35 meters high, allowing people to enjoy the endless natural beauty indoors.
The villa is divided into four floors. The basement is mainly for leisure space, including sauna and fitness area. The ground floor includes living room, dining room, kitchen, indoor swimming pool and garage. The second floor is the main entrance and hall. The rooms, library and children's room are also on this building; the third floor on the top is used for the main bedroom and lounge, as well as the observation deck. The ground floor and the upper building are connected by a column of three concrete structures, and two columns are designed with a transparent glass elevator and stairs. The top of the building is supported by a hyperboloid concrete structure, and the 360-degree large-faced glass window surrounds the forest.
For this private mansion built by Zaha Hadid, Vladislav Doronin is grateful to Zaha for making his "dream house" come true, especially when he gets up to see the clouds, the blue sky and the tree. "That moment you I feel that I am free. In winter, you can see the snowy scenery. In the spring, there is a green picture, and there are no high-rise buildings in the surrounding area to block the line of sight. It is really amazing, like flying in the sky. Feeling like!".
