Shield House: Modern Residence by Studio H:T in Denver, Colorado
The Shield House designed by Studio H:T and located in Denver, Colorado. This modern residence urban infill projection juxtaposes a tall, slender curved circulation space against a rectangular living space. The tall curved metal wall was a result of volume sheet limitations and the need to supply secrecy from the public decks of the adjacent three story triplex. This chemical element gets the stress of the residence both visually and experientially. It acts as sun catcher that brings light source down through the house from morning until early afternoon. At dark it gets a glowing, welcoming cruise for visitors. The strange, but invoking exterior design elements are part conveyed indoors with the supporter of wooden beams, some of them bended.
