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
