Studio Daniel Libeskind has released images of his latest project: a 10,000 square meter residential building planned for the center of Berlin. Occupying a half-acre corner site in the neighborhood of Chausseestrasse, “Chausseestrasse 43” will be encased by a metallic-coated ceramic facade shaped to maximize exposure to natural light.

The building, which is planned for completion in 2015, will provide 73 one- to four-bedroom apartments. At its base will be underground parking, street-level retail and a common outdoor area for residents. Perched on top, at the building’s prow, will be a high-end penthouse with its own private outdoor patio and expansive views of the city.

The façade cladding is made of a three-dimensional stoneware tile that Libeskind designed with the Italian company Casalgrande Padana. As the architect described, “The geometric ceramic panels not only create an expressive metallic pattern, but they possess surprising sustainable properties such as air purification and they are self-cleaning.”
