Text description provided by the architects. Within the urban plan of Nieuw Leyden, 24H > architecture design two ecological houses. The building block consists of 18 houses, designed by different architects. There are no regulations of the beauty commission, so the future owners are free to design their house, as long as it fits within the provided building envelope.

The density of the area is high and the width of the street is minimal. To provide its inhabitants with maximal daylight during the day, a so-called 'canyon' is introduced. The canyon flows through the house and encloses the stairs. It's orientated in a way that light falls to the lower floors.

The walls of the canyon are used to divide the house into the necessary spaces. No other walls are placed thus the canyon is present in every room. Where desired, the canyon becomes transparent and filters the daylight. Where needed, it's closed and allows toilets and bathrooms to be placed behind its walls.

The facade is an echo of the canyon. Where the canyon is projected, Corten steel is used instead of the certified wood that is applied to the rest of the facade.
