In Leiden, private commissioning was chosen for the development of the residential area Nieuw Leyden. For this high density area bordering the city centre, MVRDV conceived the master plan. Here, all the houses are designed by a different architect.

For the house in the corner plot that the studio Sophie Valla Architects was asked to design, the corner was chosen as starting point and inspiration. The end result offers the inhabitants an unexpected sense of space and changing views.
