With an interesting architecture like the one displayed by the Shield House the residence will surely attract attention from passers-by. Designed by Boulder-based Studio H:T and located in Denver Colorado the modern home spreads over 3000 square feet. Its imposing shell was adorned with a curved wall protecting the inhabitant’s privacy and constructing an asymmetric design that breaks the monotony of the volumetric structure.
All of the apartment’s architectural materials have been sensitively selected to add a contemporary feel to the apartment both contrasting and complementing the historic frontage of the historic building beneath. The main structure is clad in a lightweight silver and white Alucobond skin; limestone and Calcutta marble stonework and lime washed timber floorboards and decking complete the elegant design.
The outdoor fireplace is in the perfect place to warm up on a cool evening after taking a relaxing dip in the pool. No need to worry about dripping water as the treated wood floor has plenty of drainage. The view of the terraced lawns appears to give you a breath of pure oxygen to both energize and relax you at the same time.

This led to the creation of a very unique house that uses uniquely crafted wooden blinds that sync with the rest of the home and shut out the outside world when needed.

On the inside the three-floor house are covered in a fine balance of wood and concrete to offer perfect ambiance.
