#Single family house #Leipzig #1929
Alfred Liebig designed his own house, in which he also worked until his death in 1952.
With some details, the house belongs to the style of expression that is widespread in Leipzig, especially through the use of clinker brick to decorate for example the small windows on the first floor. There are several ceramic sculptures on the house, mostly depictions of animals, which were attached to the window reveals and the facade itself, like at the southern side. The entrance to the house is a dramatic staircase canopy. The intense blue colour and the flat roof are both strong evidence that Liebig took up ideas of modernism for the construction of his own house, especially the simple appearance and the two different roof heights that belong to two different geometrical bodies.
