Incredible Gaudi-inspired Russian summerhouse

This astonishing summerhouse showcased on was designed and built by John Hardisty in Newcastle upon Tyne. Inspired by Russian architect Gavril Baranovsky (and 56 Nevsky Prospect, St Petersburg, in particular) as well as Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. John made all the stained glass windows in his other shed over a period of about a year and built some of the rest of it using salvaged/recycled materials. Just as incredibly, the whole thing cost less than £5,000

You can see many more pictures of the build and its inspiration at John's Flickr site here. Surely this must be a contender for Shed of the Year 2011?
