Modern Views

Perched on a cliff that overlooks the Potomac River, Hawk's Nest is a one-of-a-kind residence. Referred to by neighbors in Falling Waters, West Virginia as "the glass house" due to its expansive span of Kolbe windows, the rectangular structure was conceived and designed by Greg Wiedemann, AIA, and Barbara Sweeney, AIA, of Wiedemann Architects. The homeowner, Lorie Strait, is an artist from Paris who chose this particular site because of its sweeping views in all directions.
We've worked with Kolbe on many traditional projects. When the VistaLuxe® Collection became known to us, it was an absolute perfect fit.
 
 
Windows are, by their nature, the threshold between inside and outside. The relationship of interior space to exterior space is largely orchestrated by the decision about windows. The VistaLuxe Collection allows us, as architects, to make that connection between inside and outside so that it disappears.
 
 
It's clear to me when looking at the VistaLuxe Collection that it was developed with architects. There's an attention to detail that is true of every aspect of the product.
