Vi at Silverstone
Vi at Silverstone is a Continuing Care Retirement Community developed by the Plaza Companies and Vi on 22 acres in Scottsdale, Arizona. The project features resort-like senior living in the form of apartments, villas and a care center. The 4-story main lodge houses 203 independent living units. There are 67 detached villas along a linear ‘long view’ garden, a putting course and outdoor gathering areas. The 2-story care center is a 58-unit facility containing assisted living, skilled nursing care and a memory support unit.
Vi at Silverstone was created in a classic European character that pays homage to the old-world styles and compliments today's lifestyles and building use requirements. Loggias, pergolas, arched openings and columned terraces express the regional vernacular of both the Mediterranean and the desert southwest. The classical styling that was in use during this project required a particular fenestration type. This classic window or door is the view port by which the residents view the world outside, which is a very important side of the life of a senior resident. Grouping of these windows to maximize light and the residents' connection with the outside world was paramount in how the interior living environment was shaped, and definitive of the architectural style.
