The Russian James Bond

This is last year’s news and some of you may have already seen it, but here is a video of Zaha Hadid’s only completed private residence:

It was built in the Barvikha Forest near Moscow. The client, Vladislav Doronin, is a real estate developer. He owns/runs Capital Group, OKO Group, and Aman. Zaha used to call him the Russian James Bond.

The central idea behind the house is the raised master bedroom suite. Vladislav wanted to wake up and only see trees and sky. And so Zaha raised the bedroom 22m above grade.

Look at it in section (those stairs!):

It wouldn’t be my first choice, but I can appreciate its boldness. What are your thoughts on this house?
