Nieuw Leyden – V23K16 Four Seasons

Up until recently it was rather unusual that unprofessional clients would initiate private housing projects in Dutch inner cities. For a short time the Dutch government strives to change this tendency. In 2002 the Ministry of Housing passed a bill that from 2005 onwards 30% of the new buildings in the Netherlands must be developed by private clients. The development of the former slaughterhouse area in the historical city centre of Leiden, the Netherlands oldest university town, is the most representative example of its kind.

Soft, dynamic tectonic turns establish the new Civil Courts of Justice as a pivotal point for an urban masterplan – horizontal shifts in mass generate ‘elasticity’, drawing visitors to a structure which ‘floats’ above ground plain – shifting metallic panels animate the façade – a spiraling atrium within curls around a public courtyard.
