Introducing The Shadow House, winner of six AIA regional awards: Intellectual, contemporary design by architect Antoine Predock playing on the relationship between light and shadows to create an ever-changing interior mood. The 24 ft. high entry features a suspended glass cube accented by ribbons of light from long, slender skylights, glowing fiber-optics at night. A tiny portal beams in light to signal with the winter solstice in the entry tower. Anchoring the house, a unique water feature courses down a 24 ft x 30 ft gently sloping courtyard of ancient Chinese pavers and evokes the sound of a mountain stream. A central 80 ft. hallway, eminently suitable for artwork, leads to a large glass door framing Chicoma Peak to the west. The spacious living / dining room highlights the interplay of light and shadow, faces the courtyard water feature, and has a striking fireplace, flanked by two tall glass display cases. Adjacent to the kitchen is a multi-purpose den leading to the upper end of the courtyard and thence to an outside patio. The kitchen is the epitome of form + function, with a central stone island and complimented by a spacious butler’s pantry. The master bedroom suite has an ingenious master bathroom with custom basaltina tub and built-in reclining chaise, and is privately located from the guest suite. The essence of the interior, including a Zen courtyard facing the tatami alcove off the master bedroom, appeals to those with a contemplative, academic side. Cont:
