Pasel.Hünzel Architects designed on a former industrial site close to the historical heart of the renowned university of Leiden a series of eleven town houses.

The residence comprises two separate dwellings for mother and son, including two spacious and hidden patios. 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 tranquillity, a living space that is generous and open, where inside and outside merge into each other.
