Sometimes we just need to be alone, clear our minds from all the static of the everyday grind and escape the world. What better place is there to experience that tranquility than your home? The yearning for that feeling of harmony is what led Vladislav Doronin, CEO of the OKO Group, an international real estate development firm, to work with the late Zaha Hadid to design his private residence.
The Capital Hill Residence, located in the Barvihka Forest near Moscow, looks like a peaceful escape for the likes of James Bond. Towering the trees surrounding it, this extraordinary home features Zaha’s signature organic intricacy, as well as a complexity of spatial arrangement that feels serene. The residence is divided into two sections: one merging with the hillside and the other rising above the treetops for spectacular views. Inside, there are entertainment spaces, as well as an indoor swimming pool, fitness center, sauna and hammam. This beautiful brainchild of Dame Zaha Hadid is the only private residence she designed that was actually completed.
