Here is the Historic and Ethnographic Museum on Sulaiman-Too Mountain in Osh, Kyrgyzstan (Kygyz Republic) built in 1978. Note the Bondian glass/concrete entrance to the cave, which could double visually as a radar station. If you were hoping to move your evil organization in before winter, however, I'm afraid you're five years too late. The surrounding sacred area and additional caves became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.
The second building that caught my eye is the Tareika Hotel in Dombai, Russia. Located halfway up a mountain, the Tareika is only accessible by funicular railroad during the day. It sports three rooms and a lobby and is apparently able to disassemble into sixteen sections or be carried by helicopter- ideal lair for the diabolical mastermind on the go! The Tareika also appears to be either an authentic Futuro design by Suuronen, or was constructed based on his plans. Additional info here.
