Maisongomme measures 10×26 ft and features long, vertical windows recovered from a shop that went bust. The windows infuse the space with plenty of light and they allow for fresh air to permeate the interior. The structure was creatively made from scrap wood, insulation glass, repurposed stainless steel trays and some leftovers from an old shed that used to stand on the same space.

But what really makes the structure stand out is it rubbery walls, which have  made from car tires [1] found at a local garage. The tires together with some stone wool insulation [2] make this fantastic garden shed both water and winter-proof. The interior walls were created with assorted pieces of found wood, and their setting form an eco-friendly patchwork [3] motif.

Maisongomme is yet another fantastic example of how we can create our own piece of paradise [4] using what’s already available.
