Id College And Roc Leiden in the Netherlands by Mecanoo

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Article source: Mecanoo 

ID College and ROC Leiden offer secondary vocational training and education. The new build location in the historic city centre of Leiden accommodates the vocational education for students in healthcare. The complexity and historical nature of the inner city site required a thorough analysis in order to developed a design vision which reconciled these aspects within the brief. The integrated approach in which architecture, urban planning, landscape, interior design and engineering converge results in a unique design.

Office building for Dutch financial services group ACHMEA Leiden in The Netherlands by VVKH Architecten

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: VVKH Architecten 

Achmea’s office building marks the entrance to Leiden town centre. Five grand natural stone stairwells and a colourful façade shape the face directed towards this country’s busiest railway line. The road runs under the building on the town side. Here, the twelve tree columns shape a unique avenue leading towards Leiden city centre. The buildings’ use of colour refers to the painting ’rhythm of a Russian dance´ of the artist Theo van Doesburg. In 1917 he founded the Dutch famous artistic movement ’The Stijl’  in this town.

V13K05 – private house in Leiden, Netherlands by pasel.kuenzel architects

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: pasel.kuenzel architects

Home to a patchwork family and space for a living and working environment, this house serves several ambitions.

With just one façade facing the narrow alley, zenith daylight is directed through a central light well reaching all spaces of the residence. The spacious atrium is the core element of the building, providing a space of specific neutrality and merging the living areas on the ground floor with the home office of the client photographer on the top floor. From the outside the house hides its spacious qualities, from the inside it unfolds a world of visual connections and provides a framework for social diversity.

A real student city has a flourishing pop scene, and Leiden is no exception. Already in 1969 there was the ‘Kreatief Sentrum’ [‘Creative Centre’] on Breestraat, later renamed as the Leids Vrijetijds Centrum. Thirty-five years later, the same organisation has a brand new building in the historic centre and a new name: Gebr. de Nobel, after the brothers who had a rags and scrap-metal business, well-known throughout Leiden, on precisely the same spot.
