"Prefab" Homes by Daniel Libeskind

Starchitect Daniel Libeskind is trying his hand at a design for prefabricated homes — and the results are more daring than most. Named The Villa, the 5,500-foot-homes are sized and priced for those with starchitect budgets...

The Villas are manufactured in Berlin and priced at $2.8 million to $4.2 million for European delivery and installation. The 2-story homes include 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a wine cellar and a sauna in the basement.

Known for his large scale projects like the Denver Art Museum and The World Trade Center site master plan, the New York-based architect does not have a lot of residential design in his portfolio — according to The New York Times, " [he] has worked on only two residential projects, one of them a private home in Connecticut. "

There are interesting discussion of the merits of this project (and whether it counts as prefab) on ArchDaily and in The New York Times: Libeskind Designs a Prefab Home.
