The Sky Harbor home looks like a utilitarian airplane hangar on its exterior while feeling like a welcoming home inside. To hit the right balance, Call had to rely on design elements that support the two distinct styles, and the home’s windows really hit both marks. “Some of the windows have aluminum exteriors and wood interiors,” says Scott Bucher, president of Bucher Glass. “They give the house a commercial outside appearance and a homey inside.”
Even though the homeowners love their great room, Call made sure all the small details in the home make good design sense. The floors, made from Brazilian walnut, Brazilian rusty slate, cork, linoleum, and wool carpet, can all stand up to glacial silt and heavy traffic patterns.
