  Harvest Boon-In the eastern Netherlands, resourceful recyclers 2012Architects have built a house almost entirely out of locally sourced scrap, from old billboards to broken umbrellas.

  Norwegian Wood-Jürgen Kiehl upgraded his 1970s Norwegian vacation home from the original structure he built as a young architect. Here, built-in benches function both as seating and as spare beds in the living room. His wife, Kari Holm, says the striped, hand-woven fabric she found in Greece is indestructible, and the cork flooring throughout the house has gone 40 years without needing replacing.
