We consider the Laplacian in a domain squeezed
between two parallel curves in the plane,
subject to Dirichlet boundary conditions on one of the curves
and Neumann boundary conditions on the other.
We derive two-term asymptotics for eigenvalues
in the limit when the distance between the curves tends to zero.
The asymptotics are uniform and local in the sense that
the coefficients depend only on the extremal points where
the ratio of the curvature radii of the Neumann boundary
to the Dirichlet one is the biggest.
We also show that the asymptotics can be obtained
from a form of norm-resolvent convergence
which takes into account the width-dependence
of the domain of definition of the operators involved.
