If you’ll be replacing the windows in your home to increase indoor energy efficiency anytime soon, get ready to simultaneously up the ante on your outdoor aesthetics. This quaint backyard retreat made from old windows has us excited with its clever upcycling. What could have been dubbed ‘waste’ was instead turned into a treasured escape from daily household antics. Whether you need privacy on a phone call, a place to have cocktails with friends, or want to take a snooze or read a novel, we see this space as a real window of opportunity.
