Here’s the thing: Azumi uses water-jet laser technology to cut reclaimed roof tiles (normally non-recycled objects) to size so they fit atop her avian abodes. And most of us probably don’t have access to water-jet laser cutters. And most of us probably aren’t as skilled at engraving beautifully detailed Victorian-esque facades into wood as Azumi. But still, the basic concept behind the design — a craft-inspired animal shelter that incorporates home improvement refuse — is inspiring.
Have you ever created anything fanciful and fun out of landfill-bound leftovers (roof tiles, lumber, old fixtures, etc.) from a home improvement project?
