Location: The futuristic house dubbed as Capital Hill is located just outside the city of Moscow, in the middle of a pine forest of sorts.
Accommodation: The house has been built on 2,650 square meters of living space. The two large and 65-feet tall towers house the couple's bedroom. The exact number of bedrooms and living rooms in the building are not known but the space is sufficient to house at least 5 other rooms. Having been built as a private lovebirds nest, it will not be a surprise if the home features only one bedroom - the master bedroom.
Features: Luxury features abound in the home. Architect Zaha Hadid has done an awesome job in adding an updated gymnasium, a super swimming pool and a magnificent spa in futuristic settings.

There are amazing vies of the forest from the towers. The whole house is built largely of glass.

Location: The sustainable and solar eco-house, Horus, is located on a private island, the Isla Playa de Cleopatra, in Turkey. This island is in the Gulf of Gökova.
Accommodation: The 'iris' and 'pupil' part of the Horus-eye is the actual living space in the building. There are 25 large bedrooms in this building which makes people often think that it is more of a hotel than a home!
Features: The well-studied, bio-climactic design of the house ensures that the self-sufficient building is not very expensive too. A combination of a photo-voltaic system and a geo-thermal system provides all the energy that the house needs. The top is made by a steel and glass dome which heats the building through sunlight. There are 5 different lounges within the building which also includes rainwater harvesting systems and waste-water treatment systems too. There are also landscaped terraces from where the views are simply awesome and incredible.
Neighborhood: The island is famed to have been made by Mark Anthony for Cleopatra by importing sand from Egypt so that the queen would never have to step on soil other than that which is Egyptian! So, Ms. Campbell has had a famous predecessor in the otherwise home-free neighborhood.
