World's First US$1bil Home Completed



Taken from DailyChilli (and they took it from other site)

India's richest man Mukesh Ambani is having a few friends round to celebrate moving into his new Mumbai pad. But as the home has 27 storeys, soars to 173 metres and is worth an estimated US1bil (RM3.08bil), it will be a housewarming like no other.

The house (building/tower/I dunno, you name it) called Antilia - name derived from mythical island. You can find out more about Antilia here. The house completed with everything will be occupied by Ambani, his wife and three children. The building has swimming pool, helicopter pads on the roof, variety of lounges, ballroom and even a cinema.

The reason for the design:

An asymmetric stack of glass, steel and tiles with a four-storey hanging garden, Ambani's new home has been built, reports say, with local materials as far as possible. According to Forbes magazine, the plants save energy by absorbing sunlight, making it easier to keep the interior cool in summer and warm in winter.

5, to be precise. mmg membazir, rich people got money to spend. x tau nk buat apa kut. tp selalunya org buat mansion. ruang tanah sempit kut. so dia meninggi ke atas.
