Salvaged Jungle Kitchen

In the jungles of Maui, artist and builder Tom Sewell has built his own oasis. Using discarded materials from the Hawaiian island's sugar mills, he's created his own home and outbuildings as well as his Zen Complex—a residence for young artists who intern with him—on his 17-acre property in Haiku. His most recent work is a 36-square-foot kitchen made of salvaged Cor-Ten steel and corrugated polycarbonate.

The Zen Complex features the Zen Guest House (a 96-square-foot sleeping quarter), the Zen Bathroom (a 48-square-foot, freestanding bathroom equipped with a toilet, sink, and shower), and the latest addition: the six-foot-wide, six-foot-deep, 12-foot-tall Zen Kitchen.
