Upper Vista is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, an intriguing home designed in 1935 that extends slightly over a thirty foot waterfall. Upper Vista shares Fallingwater’s symmetry with cascading water; its transparent glass casing nurtures clear views of the surrounding golf course, the Falls, and forests beyond. Robust horizontal lines and wide cornices evoke natural strength. Many residences feature palatial terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows, linking the magnificent interiors to the breathtaking landscape beyond. Even Upper Vista’s colours, its warm stone base topped with fluid glass and touches of green, suggest a connection to the earth. The building appears to emerge organically from the landscape.
Upper Vista’s porte-cochere is a truly graceful architectural feature. This elegant carriage entrance provides year round protection from the elements, as well as a sophisticated portal that announces to the world, you’ve indeed arrived.
