Canyon-Inspired Residence in the Netherlands with Original Architecture Details

This uncommon looking residence was designed by architects 24H > architecture and is located in Leyden, The Netherlands. According to Arch Daily, the facade of the home is an echo of the “canyon” represented by this project: “the canyon flows through the house and encloses the stairs.” This feature allows light to enter the building and ensure a good illumination for each of the three floors. More explanations from the architects reveal that “the walls of the canyon are used to divide the house into the necessary spaces. No other walls are placed thus the canyon is present in every room. Where desired, the canyon becomes transparent and filters the daylight. Where needed, it’s closed and allows toilets and bathrooms to be placed behind its walls”. To us, this modern residence looks like a playful display of materials and shapes and we salute the originality of its architecture. How do you find it?
