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. In their series of eleven town houses, Rotterdam based architects pasel.künzel architects present yet another exceptional residence.

The dark pre-patinated zinc facade 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 tranquility, a living space that is generous and open, where inside and outside merge into each other.
