Not necessarily what you would expect in a snowy climate the Shield House is stunning never the less. Located in beautiful Denver, Colorado the dwelling was designed by the Boulder-based architectural firm at Studio H:T.
The contemporary home spans a spacious 3,000 square feet, and is equipped with a large curved privacy wall to shield residents from the neighboring homes.
“This urban infill project juxtaposes a tall, slender curved circulation space against a rectangular living space. The tall curved metal wall was a result of bulk plane restrictions and the need to provide privacy from the public decks of the adjacent three story triplex. This element becomes the focus of the residence both visually and experientially. It acts as sun catcher that brings light down through the house from morning until early afternoon. At night it becomes a glowing, welcoming sail for visitors.”
