The Leonardo Glass Cube in Bad Driburg was designed by the German design studio 3deluxe and celebrated its opening in March 2007. After numerous innovative temporary design projects and architectural concepts, the Glass Cube is the first permanent building 3deluxe was able to realize. The architecture was commissioned by the company Glaskoch, better known as “Leonardo”, as a show and communication space.

The Westphalian family business is already producing its creative and innovative glass articles in the 5th generation and distributes them worldwide. On 2900 square meters, the futuristic building shows visitors the philosophy and visions of the company. The 3deluxe team skillfully combines the organically flowing forms of the interior with the facade and exterior surfaces. The result is a light as well as fragile architectural design that seems to look directly into the soul of the company.
