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.
The curved wall was used to create a covered exit to the rooftop terrace where the family living here can enjoy fresh air and views of the surroundings. On the inside the wall also acts as a defining feature helping the architects design a spectacular display of wooden beams and details contrasting with the white walls. The tall graceful curved beams achieve their length by being joined by unusual mirrored dovetails secured with wooden pegs.
