Airport House

Project: Residential
Located on a runway with sweeping views of the Colorado rocky mountains, this residence is designed to reflect the convergence of earth and sky. The heavy use of natural materials, large expanses of glass and the reflecting pool contribute to the integrated feel. Mature landscaping, stone masonry block, wood panels, bamboo floor and ceilings and travertine tile ground the home into its environment. The owners are avid pilots. Their home reflects the high tech nature of their plane as well as their love for contemporary and sustainable design. Spacious windows, sliding glass doors and two-sided fireplaces open the house to the spectacular western views.
