Shellback House

Your Adventure Begins Here


Shellback House

We’re sure that you’ve heard the adage of making your home a sanctuary. An oasis. A haven. The truth is, a home is much more than a space to store our belongings. If the past five months we’ve been spending a lot more time at home has taught us anything, it’s that our homes are much more enjoyable to be in when they reflect our personal lifestyle and taste, a space that prioritizes elegance and comfort over clutter and disorganization.

To harness the power of beauty in design, artists, architects, planners and designers combine the principles of design and the elements of beauty to create environments that adapt to local contexts, meet user needs and positively impact occupants. They masterfully weave functional design fundamentals – including design elements like light and texture, and design principles such as harmony, proportion and scale – together with the aesthetics that impact human senses, like loudness, texture and physical movement. “True beauty in design is when the two [functional and aesthetic elements] work so seamlessly with each other it feels like poetry walking in the space,” Dearness says. A well-designed space is not just something that individuals move through, but rather a key influence on occupant health, happiness and overall sensory experience.
