The properties of layered Anderson/Kondo lattices with metallic electrons confined in 2D xy planes and local spins in insulating layers forming chains in z direction are studied. Each spin possesses its own 2D Kondo cloud, so that the Nozieres' exhaustion problem does not arise. The excitation spectrum is gapless both in charge and spin sectors. Possible experimental realizations of the model are briefly discussed.
