Compostable garden office

The Cork Studio is a remarkable garden office building made virtually all out of cork (largely bricks of recycled wine bottles) by the appropriately-named Studio Bark. It's so green that it can not only be recycled, it can be composted. The designers tested it to make sure it was fire and water resistant and indeed didn't even use any kind of slab foundation because it seemed redundant. They have gone to some pains to explain the process and their eco-friendly reasons behind the work on a special post here which is really worth reading. One particularly nice touch - the outer door handle is made from an old corkscrew.
