Montclair, NJ

GRADE’s Upper Mountain House will be a classic gesture balancing cosmopolitan lifestyle with the serenity of small-town living, set against some of the area’s most breathtaking views of New York City. The handsome, western-facing façade hints at influences from Philip Johnson’s modernist Connecticut homes. Its refined architectural lines and detailing, minimal window portals and glass firmly anchor the structure in stone, wood slats and steel, creating an exterior threshold, beyond which the composition and materiality unfold, quietly bolstering what will be an unparalleled panoramic experience. (Sq ft: 6,800)
