About Daniel Libeskind
Daniel Libeskind is an international figure in architecture and urban design, renowned for introducing a critical discourse into the field of architecture and for his multidisciplinary approach to the practice. Libeskind’s prominence was firmly established in 2003 with his selection as the master planner commissioned to rebuild the World Trade Centre site in new York, the most significant, complex, politically and emotionally charged American architectural project in decades. The Jewish Museum Berlin, the Denver Art Museum, and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto are among Daniel Libeskind’s designs, which have appeared on the covers of Time Magazine, Architectural Record, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, among others. Libeskind’s ideas have influenced a new generation of architects and planners interested in urban development. Daniel Libeskind‘s commitment to expanding the scope of architecture and urbanism reflects his profound interest and involvement in philosophy, art, literature and music. Fundamental to Libeskind‘s philosophy is the notion that buildings and urban projects are crafted with perceptible human energy, and that they address the greater cultural context in which they are built.
About the Daniel Libeskind Villas Project
For the first time, Daniel Libeskind has devised a home which can be erected anywhere in the world. The villas are shipped to any part of the world and assembled on site with a team of professionals. Only 30 villas are available for worldwide distribution.
“This is really the first time I’ve taken on the issue of doing something which is a limited artistic edition of a new space, of a new way of living. It’s really designing a total work of art”, says Mr.Libeskind.
The Villa prototype, located in Dortmund, is truly a work of art. Built from premium materials, this German-made, sculptural living space meets the highest standards in design, craftsmanship and sustainability. Libeskind’s Villa awakens the senses: light floods through glass expanses, clean lines invite calm, elegant halls and staircases offer seamless transitions. Symbolically and physically, the Villa’s connection with nature is uninterrupted, offering ample natural light and open spaces.
The Villa was conceived and designed to meet today’s tight sustainability standards and demonstrates that exceptional architecture can promote the efficient use of natural resources. Sustainable materials are at the heart of Libeskind’s design.
While not apparent from the exterior, the Villa is largely constructed of wood, a renewable resource that is making a strong comeback as a key building material for the 21st Century due to its carbon-storing capabilities. The Villa is meant to provide homeowners with comfort and a high living standard in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner and therefore offers a multifunctional heating, ventilation and cooling system which recycles air to pre-heat the incoming air at a heat recovery rate of 90%. The system is exclusively powered by solar and geothermal energy. Moreover all building technologies are monitored and controlled via an electrical home control system which allows homeowners to program custom lighting scenes, operate sun shades, regulate room temperatures, ventilation and household devices, and monitor the security system.
The company in charge of distributing and installing the Villa is Proportion Gmbh of Berlin, founded in 2007 to make contemporary architecture of the world’s leading studies accessible to individuals. Order-to-completion time is around 6-8 months depending on the permitting process. The Villa is delivered in close cooperation with a select number of experienced construction partners, each one of them a leading player in its field. During a brief study and planning phase, Proportion and the home owners will jointly identify the conditions necessary for the delivery of the Villa to the planned destination, and they will help homeowners choose all materials, fittings and technologies as well as additional features such as a pool or a garage.
