Text description provided by the architects. On the site of a former slaughterhouse in the historical heart of the Dutch university city of Leiden, emerges one of the biggest urban developments of private dwellings in the Netherlands. In their series of eleven, the Rotterdam based architects, Pasel.Künzel Architects, present yet another spectacular house, giving a new interpretation of the classical Dutch housing typology.

With their V12K0102 residence Pasel.Kuenzel Architects created a remarkable project on an almost triangular building plot, the remnant of an inner city housing block. On a 30 meter long one-story high base, two building volumes were placed on opposite sides, one being the ‘children’s house’ and the other serving as the ‘Parents house’. The two parts facing each other allow a connection with visible eye contact, but are physically separated.


Collective spaces for living, dining and playing are situated on the ground floor, meandering around two intimate courtyards. This setup establishes an immediate relation between ‘life inside and outside’, creating an oasis in the city. Towards the city, the introverted house reveals its inner side with two gigantic glass panes that also permit Dutch light to reach deep into the museum like spaces.
