Pete Retondo Architecture
It's called "adaptive re-use," taking a building that time has left behind and giving it a new life. A little-used storage building that had once been an agricultural bunk house was moved into the trees and becomes a library and writer's workroom / meeting space with a guest bedroom in the trees providing views of the river and thousands of acres of marsh teeming with bird life. Special glazing (Ornilux) adapted to bird vision makes what is transparent to human eyes seem like a thicket of brambles, preventing the daily collisions with windows that would otherwise occur.
