Naomi Campbell's Futuristic Russian Home: Like Something From 'Battlestar Galactica'


Naomi Campbell's Moscow mansion by Zaha Hadid

There's only one thing that can top the epic "Star Trek" home shaped like the Starship Enterprise. That would be supermodel Naomi Campbell's "Battlestar Galactica" mansion. Campbell's billionaire boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin, is building the dream home of sci-fi nerds, dubbed the "Capital Hill Residence," in a forest near Moscow, Russia.

The 27,524-square-foot house by renowned architect Zaha Hadid -- who also designed the Olympics Aquatics Center in London -- is nearly complete after six years of construction. The home features two large white towers rising about 65 feet above ground which, according to the architect, houses the master bedrooms (who lives with only one master bedroom?) and a lounge with an exterior terrace. To add to the apparent spaceship theme, the tower is connected to the lower levels with a transparent glass elevator and staircase.


The home's interior aims to be just as eccentric as the exterior. It will feature enormous glass panels, extremely high ceilings and smooth curves throughout. Some luxurious amenities will include an indoor pool (that converts to a dance floor), a gym, a Finnish spa, and both a Turkish and a Russian bath.
