Zaha Hadid Capital Hill Residence

Zaha Hadid Architects has released new images of the British architect’s first built house, the soon-to-be completed Capital Hill residence, located in the hills of Barvikha, just west of Moscow. The spaceship-like house has been commissioned by Russian finance magnate Vladislav Doronin, who intends to present it as a wedding gift to his future bride, none other than Miss Naomi Campbell. Divided into two parts, a main structure blending into the nearby hillside, and a periscope-inspired tower to overlook the surrounding forest.  The first of its kind by Ms. Hadid, the concrete, 2,500 square meter residence will boast a Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, Russian bath, gym, indoor swimming pool, and reception hall. I can’t imagine a more perfect future home for one great diva by another.
