MVRDV’s ‘nieuw leyden’ urban plan will result in the construction of 18 unique houses by several different architects, free from zoning limits and aesthetic regulations, the residences must only adhere to the building envelope given. two sustainably-driven townhouses designed by dutch practice 24H-architecture exhibit an artistic facade and far surpass the ecological standards in the netherlands. a central courtyard, dubbed the ‘canyon’ breaks through the house like a fissure that illuminates all the interior spaces of the house, lending to a comfortable environment naturally heatedthrough solar gain. highly insulated walls and low E glass maintain internal temperatures, with solar water heating reducing the need for gridenergy.  the front facade gives the house the most characteristic feature, a poetic art piece of organically curved lines defined by FSC-certifiedlouro gamela and jatoba wood planks and corten steel panels that make for a unique and sustainable elevation. the interior features bambooparquet floors, window and door frames, and the back terrace decking.
