On a bank timberland outward of Moscow, among 65-foot-high (20-meter-high) hunger and birch trees, sits a only private house to be designed and built by Zaha Hadid in her lifetime. With a form tangible by a healthy surroundings, a Capital Hill Residence is divided into dual components, one merging with a tilted hillside, and another “floating” 72 feet (22 meters) above belligerent to clear fantastic views opposite the Russian forested landscape.
Like many of Zaha Hadid’s open works, a Capital Hill Residence is tangible by liquid geometries rising from a landscape. The intrigue is orderly into 4 levels, with a reduce dual floors housing a vital room, dining room, kitchen, interesting spaces, indoor swimming pool, and convenience facilities. The opening foyer, library, guest room and children’s playroom occupy a initial floor, while a master bedroom suites and extraneous terraces on a towering top turn emerge above a trees to take in unconditional vistas of a surroundings.
The scheme’s dual categorical components are connected around 3 structural concrete columns, with a transparent glass conveyor and staircase situated between dual of a columns. The columns join a roof during a initial floor, defining skylights and a double-height categorical entrance. The roof is upheld by a double-curved cast concrete structure, portion to support views of a timberland from a vital room while also dividing a vital spaces.
The Capital Hill Residence is, in a way, a jubilee of early idealist modernism, from expressionism by constructivism and a visible dematerialization of architecture, creation it seem as something fast-moving and organic, rather than bound and static. Including organic intricacy, complexity of spatial arrangements, and superb craftsmanship within a figure and form. But even some-more than that, it is, in a difference of both designer and client, a “dream house” — as most anticipation as reality, an thought of design that still seems somehow impossible.
