Antilia is a private home in Mumbai, India's billionaire's row. It is the home of Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani and his family, who moved in in 2012. It stands 27 stories tall, with a height of 173 metres (568 feet), a floor area of over 37,000 square metres (400,000 square feet).
Luxurious Houses In Mumbai
The skyscraper-mansion is indeed one of the world's largest and most intricate private residences, with luxuries such as three helipads, air traffic control, a 168-car garage, a ballroom, 9 high-speed elevators, a 50-seat cinema, terrace gardens, swimming pool, spa, wellness center, temple, and a snow room that tosses out snowflakes from the walls.
Antilia's architectural design is inspired by the lotus and the sun. The building's upper six stories have been designated as a private full-floor residential area. It's also engineered to survive an 8 magnitude earthquake.
Most Expensive House In The India
It is the world's second most valuable residential building, following British crown property Buckingham Palace, and the world's most valuable private mansion, with a value of $1.2 billion as of May 2020.
It's on Cumballa Hill, South Bombay, on Altamount Road.
Antilia began construction in 2006 and was designed in collaboration with US architecture firms Perkins and Will & Hirsch Bedner Associates, with Leighton Contractors, an Australian construction business, initially in control of the project. B. E. Billimoria & Company Ltd. finished the construction of Antilia project.
The house is 27 stories tall, with extra-high ceilings on each storey. (Other structures of comparable height might have up to 60 stories). Some claim the Antilia is the world's highest single-family house, while others argue that it isn't because it has room for 600 workers.
Modern Luxury House Design
The lotus and the sun are used in the interior design. Crystals, marble, and mother-of-pearl are used to recreate these two aspects throughout the structure.
The structure features three helipads, although none of them are functioning. The Director-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) must certify the helipads as airworthy, and the central defence and environment ministries must provide their permission.
Antilia is the world's most expensive private residence, with a price tag of almost US$2 billion. Forbes Magazine stated the mansion cost almost $3 billion according to Thomas Johnson, director of marketing at architecture firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (consulted by Reliance during the creation of the structure's layout).
The individual who lives there should be worried about what he sees around him and wonder if he can make a difference. ~Ratan Tata
