A cabin made from salvaged windows

Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz have repurposed old windows to create a beautiful framed glass wall as part of their house in a remote part of Western Virginia. Nick a photographer and Lilah a designer decided to quit their jobs in 2012 and went to build this idyllic cabin in the woods, overlooking rolling hills. The old window frames add structure and character to the building, allowing for light to be divided into multiple sections which subtly break up the glass.
