zaha hadid designs spaceship house for vladislav doronin

russian billionaire vladislav doronin has commissioned zaha hadid to design a house in moscow, russia for himself and his supermodel girlfriend naomi campbell. the spaceship-like abode is located in barvikha, surrounded by pine and birch trees reaching up to 20 meters high providing a bit of privacy. the overall design of the 2,650 square meter ‘capital hill residence’ features two spatial components. the main program materializes from its hill-side location, housing the more communal living and dining spaces, while an approximately 22-meter high tower structure, reminiscent of a periscope, emerges upwards from the central volume offering dynamic views of the surrounding wooded landscape.

  • Hadid\’s architecture screams \”escape\”. This particular design looks as though it should have gun turrets. As Christopher Lasch presaged in The Revolt of the Elites, the super-rich have achieved escape velocity from the gravitational pull of the very society they rule over……

  • really poor architecture. reminds me of something a first year student would design in attempt to appear more creative than his peers. even the renderings suggest very average spaces for a building that is clearly intended to push the barrier. hooray for computers or zaha would actually have to design something!

  • If this is “the future” it’s looking grim.
    I give credit to fantasy & when it can be
    afforded but this is a tasteless Jetsons
    nightmare, a cliche! Saha, I think you\’ve
    taken a step back on this one.
    Go back to the future.

  • Only the rich could have such a freaking awesome structure like this work of art. Personally I would have gone with a more nature look inside so you had both worlds, future outside and a environmental inside with wooden beams incorperated into the structuralaarchitecture of this home……truly an out of this world building I’d love to live in it and be a kid again as if we had crash landed on a planet in a galaxy far far away….lol may the force be with you.
