Zaha Hadid has revealed these images of a one-off villa in Russia's Barvikha Hills, near the capital of Moscow. The scheme is divided into two main components: a lower part which will follow the natural topography of the site, and an upper element which will ' oat' 22m above the ground, allowing panoramic views above the treetops. The upper element will sit on three concrete 'legs', like a tower, between which a glass elevator and staircase will connect the two components. The villa will have four levels, offering living space and an indoor swimming pool on the lower oors, while the upper oors will house bedrooms. Master bedrooms will be at the top of the tower. The project will use mainly precast and in situ concrete, steel and glass. Details of the scheme have been kept under wraps at the request of the anonymous client, so costs and completion dates remain unknown. However, work is expected to start later in the year.
