Hollywood villains don’t just have ambitious and dastardly aspirations, they also tend to have an impeccable modernist taste when it comes to their choice of residence or headquarters. This silver-screen tradition is as true today as it was in the early 1960s when the first Bond flick was released. To celebrate domestic dwellings of these on-screen ne’er-do-wells, Tra Publishing has just released a new hardcover coffee table book exploring the properties built and/or occupied by some of film’s most infamous instigators.

Dubbed, ‘Lair: Radical Homes And Hideouts Of Movie Villains’, the 9.2” x 13” hardcover book includes a plethora of photographs along with some 200 architectural illustrations showing the designs, layouts, and inner-workings of 15 lairs from films spanning the last several decades such as Star Wars, Dr. Strangelove, The Incredibles, Blade Runner 2049, Ex Machina, and, You Only Live Twice, just to name a few. The 296-page work also delves into the relationships between movie villains and lavishly-appointed real estate, as well as how and why cement and glass modernism became the norm.
