Architecture: Leonardo Glass Cube
I have had this Leonardo Glass Cube marked in my favorites for some time now. Not only is the architecture fantasitc, but the landscape design is remarkable. I love how the house looks like a glass cube that has been trapped by a spider web.
3deluxe created this distinctive corporate architecture for the brand Leonardo. The integrative design concept combines architecture, interior design and landscape design into a complex aesthetic entity.
The glass facade allows the Leonardo Glass Cube to interplay with the surrounding landscape. Inside, a view of a generous open space with an undulating white wall opens up to visitors. Between the curved wall and the glass facade a hallway provides space for informal meetings and events.
The building is a multi-layered composition: the silhouette-like genetics overlay with the graphic design of the glass facade and elements on the inside.
