Residential Architecture: Nieuw Leyden House by 24H > architecture: “..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 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..” Surprising, almost neo-Art Nouveau facade, despite the presence of Corten steel; natural light, wood, an unfortunate over-texturisation of interior walls..
