Here is what the room looks like for me:

The trapdoor type on 14,23 is wrong, and the room cannot be cleared.

EDIT: The bug is triggered by arriving in 1N1W, then leaving to the North and solving 2N1W first. When returning to 1N1W, the bug occurs, and the trapdoor will have changed to the wrong type.

Unfortunately, it cannot be cleared and requires restoring to before 1N1W is entered.

Edited the post above to show how to trigger the bug.

I wonder if some state is not being reset correctly between rooms.

I'd be happy to upload a fixed version, but the scripting is not mine, so I'd have to completely rely on the input from others here :(

After further investigation, it seems to be an issue with restoring a save from a previous version before publication. The exact details of what happens aren't clear, but it apparently involves character ID numbers changing and the save file getting confused about which ones should exist or not.

So it's only a problem for people who played the hold during the contest or while it was in architecture and attempt to continue from wherever they were, not for people who download it and start a new game.
