With a net worth of about $49 billion, the owner, Mukesh Ambani was named the wealthiest person in India at the end of 2018. The tycoon also one of the wealthiest humans on Earth in 2019. The oil and gas billionaire can also boast about owning the world’s biggest and most expensive private residence in the world. The $2 billion home known as the Antilia — because, as you will notice, giving a name to your home is clearly a thing for the super-rich— is a towering, 27-tall story skyscraper located in downtown Mumbai.
Mr. Ambani worked with two architecture firms, namely Perkins + Will and Hirsch Bedner Associates, to develop his personal skyscraper home. Standing at 550-feet high and hosting about 400,000 square feet of living space, the complete project took over four years to complete. To prevent the designers from repeating architectural elements in the house, no two floors are alike in either floor plan or construction material. The overall construction is based on Vaastu, an Indian architectural conception that’s similar to the Chinese Feng shui idea. Nine lifts carry individuals throughout the extensive complex, and the top floors of the Antilia give panoramic views of the Arabian Sea.
