Kolbe Vistaluxe Windows featured in Products Magazine
When homeowners Rebecca Bridge and Evan Lundgren purchased their property on the outskirts of Seattle’s bustling downtown, they envisioned a home that would fully celebrate the magnificent views of the city’s skyline and Mt. Rainer beyond. With these breathtaking views at a 45 degree angle from the property, architect Amy Janof, AIA was presented with the unique challenge of maximizing these picturesque views at an unconventional angle. Additionally, the homeowners had a strong interest in mid-century modernist architecture and wanted to incorporate Rebecca’s love for the faceted geometries and compound angles of gemstones into the design of their new home.Janof knew Kolbe’s Vistaluxe Collection would be the perfect fit for the project. “We used corner windows throughout the house so you were encouraged not to look out the south façade or the west façade but rather out of the southwest corner because that’s where the view is,” says Janof, further explaining that “the unique thing about VistaLuxe is there’s a very slim corner profile, so the corner almost dissolves.”
