Called “Antilia,” the towering home in Mumbai, India, has been the largest private residence since 2010. Just how large is it? At 400,000 square feet, you could fit nearly seven football fields inside. But it’s not exactly the type of sprawling mansion you’re picturing. Instead, these square feet are built up into the sky, as the private residence is a 27-story skyscraper, owned by India’s wealthiest person, Mukesh Ambani, and his family of four. Not only does it have 27 floors with super high ceilings.
Antilia is a private residence in the billionaires row of Mumbai, India. It is the residence of the Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani & his family, who moved into it in 2012; at 27 stories, 568 ft tall, over 400,000 sq ft, and with amenities such as three helipads, air traffic control, a 168-car garage, a ballroom, 9 high speed elevators, a 50-seat theater, terrace gardens, swimming pool, spa, health center, a temple, and a snow room that spits out snowflakes from the walls, the skyscraper-mansion is one of world's largest and most elaborate private homes. The architectural design of Antilia has been fashioned along the lines of the lotus and the sun. The top six floors of the building have been set aside as the private full-floor residential area. It is also designed to withstand a magnitude 8 earthquake.
As of May 2020, it is valued at $2.2 billion, deemed to be the world's second most valuable residential property, after British crown property Buckingham Palace, and the world's most valuable private residence. Its controversial design and ostentatious use by a single family has made it infamous in India and beyond, including severe criticism in the architectural press and mockery in popular media.
