Megan and Stephen jokingly call themselves the "Engi-nerds." Their uber-modern estate has the prominent industrial feel of downtown Chicago framed with the svelte lines and finish of Scandinavian design. Step inside as we take a look at the aviation-inspired features, including a jetliner-themed home theater that's ready for lift-off...

Professional engineers, Megan and Stephen, wanted someone known for the precise detail at the helm of their dream home design. Enter Kevin Alter and his Alterstudio, the firm responsible for the deft work utilizing light and space to present intimate hillside views, while offering privacy and separation from the surrounding neighborhood. The residence is shaped like a U on the main level with the vestibule of the entryway connecting twin corridors on each side — the bedroom quarters on one end, the living and gathering areas on the other.
