One week to the anniversary of the first post on Townhouse Center! In the meantime, from Digs Digs: "24H-Architects, a Rotterdam-based studio, has designed two amazing townhouses in Leiden, The Netherlands. The facade of each home is inspired by the Art Nouveau style. Both houses are eco-friendly and designed to maximize daylight. A “canyon” flows from the facade, through the house, and encloses the stairs. The walls of the "canyon" are used to divide the house into the necessary spaces, no other walls are placed." Full post with several photos here, and (tiny) elevation studies on the architect's website.
