The home, which also happens to be the first of its kind for Zaha, was commissioned by Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin.

According to the Pravda newspaper, the 2,500 square meter residence will house a laundry list of luxuries, including a Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, Russian bath, gym, indoor swimming pool, and even a reception hall.
