Daniel Libeskind has designed a 515-square-meter two-story modern prefab homes that resembles a crystal with sharp angles and towering windows bursting from the ground. This libeskind’s prefab house design can be shipped and assembled to almost any location in the world within months, includes a solar thermal system and a sauna in the basement.
Libeskind says :
“This is really the first time I have taken on the issue of doing something which is a limited artistic edition of a new space, a new way of living….I did everything in reverse in my career. Most people start with small projects and go on to design a museum. I started with a museum,”
Designed from premium materials, the living space meets the highest standards in design, craftsmanship and sustainability. The prefab’s house exterior is clad in the same standing-seam zinc as Libeskind’s Jewish Museum in Berlin. The zinc, which is attached to the house’s wooden frame, provides a solar thermal system.
Electric power is generated from photovoltaic thin film and rain water is harvested from the rooftop for use in the garden’s irrigation system. The house is classified as a low-energy structure as it successfully complies with the tough energy-saving standards of Germany’s KfW40 code, which indicates a thermal energy consumption of less than 40 kWh/m²a.
