Text description provided by the architects. On a former industrial site close to the historical heart of the renowned Dutch university city of Leiden, emerges one of the biggest urban developments of private-collective dwellings in the Netherlands.

V36K08/09 is the front end of a terrace that is built on a collective parking garage.

The residence comprises two separate dwellings for mother and son, including two spacious and hidden patios.

The dark pre-patinated zinc façade with its subtle disposition of seams gives the building a calm but yet spectacular appearance.

Looking from the outside, the house appears rather compact and closed - a fortress in the urban tissue. Only by entering the estate through the heavy wooden gate, one gets into an utterly different inner world - an oasis of tranquillity, a living space that is generous and open, where inside and outside merge into each other.
