V13K05 by pasel.künzel architects

V13K05 is a minimal residence located in Leiden, The Netherlands, designed by Pasel Kuenzel Architects. 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. Under the Dutch skies, natural daylight creates an ever-changing ambience of light and space, being the essential elements of the photographer to work with.
