How much wall do you need in your life? For one family of clients designing their new home in Leipzig, the answer to this question was, “As little as possible!” The family commissioned a modern extension to a listed villa dating back to when the city was first founded, with a facade made almost entirely of glass. Large sliding windows up to six metres tall make the living area larger, making the boundary between the inside and the great outdoors almost seamless, whatever the season. The largest and most important window front is in the dining area. The glass elements, which are six metres tall and over two metres wide, open up the living space and gallery out onto the garden. The cero sliding window connects two floors.
