18.36.54 House by Studio Daniel Libeskind is a modern house situated on 54 bucolic acres in western Connecticut. The name of this 2,000SF home derives from the 18 planes, 36 points, and 54 lines of the spiraling ribbon which defines it’s living spaces. 18.36.54 House is clad in mirror-finish bronzed stainless steel, constructed to bring the mind blowing outer view by sloping walls and ceilings. Its 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. 
The interior finishes, cabinetry, and built-in furniture are custom handcrafted from locally harvested oak planks. These elements, along with subtle elevation changes in the concrete floor distinguish the kitchen, living, dining, and sleeping areas without separating them. Challenging both traditional and modern notions of “the house in the landscape,” this bold design does not sacrifice itself to its natural setting, but selectively incorporates the elements therein for the enhancement of both house and landscape.
