A Recycled Windows House

- Architecture, Recycle

Photographer Nick Olson and fashion designer Lilah Horwitz are a couple who take their dreams very seriously. They have left their daily jobs to build and live in a house made from recycled windows. Their unique glazed dwelling is immersed in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia.

To make their dreamlike home and watch the sun set over the mountains, the romantic duo came up with the idea of building the whole facade from windows. That way they will get plenty of natural light in, reducing the need for artificial sources. To get everything they needed they embarked on a road trip collecting dozens of old windows from garage sales and antique dealers around the area. Just a few weeks after they brought everything they needed to their favorite spot and built their unique woodland home. The rest of the house was made from recycled wood, the furniture is vintage and they even got an old stove for burning wood during the winter. Their brilliant love nest is now complete and it glows during the dark.
