Description from architects

This four bedroom, two-floor prefab home while completed in Germany can be constructed and shipped to almost any location in the world within months and assembled by a team of experts within weeks.





Made of wood from renewable sources, zinc, and aluminum, the 5,000 square foot, German-made structure meets the highest standards of design and craftsmanship and complies with the highest energy-saving standards in the world.

The prefabricated structure is composed of three interlocking ribbons with striking angles, creating an asymmetrical, double height, and dynamic interior.  The Villa fills a niche in the residential market between the one-off custom home and the mass productions; the structure is customizable, made to order and delivered to the site in a fraction of the time of a ground-up construction.  Details include the elaborate metalwork of the balcony off the master bedroom, light wells directing daylight into a sauna and recessed wardrobes.








About Daniel Libeskind

Studio Libeskind is involved in designing and realizing a diverse array of urban, cultural and commercial projects around the globe. Our Studio is a collaboration of architects and designers that believe architecture is a practice of optimism. We approach our projects with the attitude that to make great places, you must believe in the future, but also remember the past.

Studio Libeskind’s architecture emerges from the idea that a building should be expressive and reflect contemporary life. Innovation is at the core of our design process. We believe that bold design must be realized with sustainable technology and we strongly believe that the art of architecture lies in creating a maximum impact within the constraints of budgets and functionality. We know from experience that great architecture comes from working with great clients; however, architecture is a public art and we hold ourselves accountable not only to the client, but to the communities, and cities in which we build.





Daniel and his partner Nina Libeskind established Studio Daniel Libeskind in Berlin, Germany, in 1989 after winning the competition to build the Jewish Museum Berlin. In February 2003, Studio Daniel Libeskind moved its headquarters from Berlin to New York City when Daniel Libeskind was selected as the master planner for the World Trade Center redevelopment.
