1. Antilla- Mumbai, India
This 27-floor personal ambani home standing at 550 feet high is $1 billion dollars. The building is named after the mythical Atlantic Island of Antillia. No two floors are alike in either plans, or materials used. For example, if wood is used on the ninth floor design, it shouldn’t be used on any other floor. This idea is to blend styles and architectural elements so spaces feel consistent without repetition.
