September 6, 2010 § Leave a comment
Mukesh Ambani, the fifth richest man in the world and head of the Mumbai based petrochemical giant Reliance Industries is estimated to be worth somewhere in the region of $43 billion. He is also the owner to-be of a 27-story skyscraper in downtown Mumbai that is to cost him colossal $2 billion!
When you’ve got so much money you have to come up with ideas on how to spend it. Exactly this happened while his wife was staying in the Mandarin Oriental in New York, back in 2005. Nita Ambani was so impressed with the interior Asian style decor that she wanted something similar for her to live in.
Her inquiries about the designer soon led to the next step; drawing up plans done with expertise by architecture firm Perkins & Will and Hirsch Bedner Associates, the designers behind the Mandarin Oriental.
What resulted from that is the world’s largest and most expensive home ever.
