World´s most expensive home: Antilia


Imagine a home with 27 stories worth 1 billion dollars boasting several roof gardens, a private theatre, a ballroom, a private parking garage for several hundred cars, guest quarters, staff quarters, a tennis court, a two-story gym, several pools and a helicopter pad equipped for three helicopters. It was built just last year in the Indian city of Mumbai.

This 21st Century tower of Babel is home to India´s richest, and world 4th richest man Mukesh Ambani. He lives there with his wife and three children. It is hardly a home anymore with more, much more, floor space than the Palace of Versailles, but it was built as a private residence….

Some critics say architects Perkins & Will were a bit too inspired by the work of Dutch architecture firm MVRDV. Their Dutch pavilion for the 2000 Hannover Expo looks quite similar. Do you agree?
