18.36.54 is a boldly designed stainless steel home by Studio Daniel Libeskind in Connecticut, US. A work of life-size origami, the layout of the home is seamless and free-flowing, as is the nearly non-existent distinction between the interior and exterior.
[quote]The name of this 2,000SF home derives from the 18 planes, 26 points, and 54 lines of the spiraling ribbon which defines it’s living spaces. This figure, situated on 54 bucolic acres in western Connecticut is clad in mirror-finish bronzed stainless steel and, as such, is never experienced the same way twice. It’s reflective luster accentuates and exaggerates environmental changes as weather, time-of-day, and seasons turn around it. Within the planes of the ribbon, enclosure is achieved via large glass planes which virtually disappear. From inside, unimpeded picturesque views of hay meadows and distant foothills are framed in surprising ways by the sloping walls and ceilings. [/quote]
