Shield House

AIA Colorado YAAG Unbuilt Honorable Mention, featured in Food Network chef Keegan Gerhard's restaurant dBar as a dessert.

This urban infill project is 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.
