As 'scaleable' becomes almost a household phrase we're probably going to be seeing a lot more of this kind of thing. Following on from Philipe Starck's Democratic Ecological Architecture house (left), Daniel Libeskind has designed the Libeskind Villa, a 2 floor (with basement), 4 bedroom signature series home that can be shipped to almost any location in the world within months and assembled on location by a team of experts within weeks.
According to Libeskind, the Villa "creates a new dialogue between contemporary living and a completely new experience of space." A balcony adjacent to the master bedroom is adorned with elaborate metal latticing and light floods into a purpose built sauna. Recessed wardrobes meanhile, provide streamlined dressing areas.
The trio of interlocking architectural bands give the Villa its trademark Libeskind striking angles and help create the dramatic, asymmetrical interior. Built from premium wood and zinc, the sculptural living space meets the highest standards of design and craftsmanship, according to the architect.
In addition to large floor-to-ceiling windows, the aluminum façade offers maximum thermal insulation, noise reduction and weather resistance.
Furthermore, its sustainability - it meets compliance with some of the toughest energy-saving standards worldwide - means it would look as good in these surroundings as it would by any Swiss lake. And the fact that it's a limited edition of just 30 units worldwide, with regional exclusivity, means that you're assured of being the only Libeskind in the village.
