Villa Welpeloo in Enschede, the Netherlands, doesn't look like a recycled building. Its austere lines and spacious interior have nothing of the junkyard aesthetic about them. Yet despite appearances, it's reused to the bones. To accomplish this, architects Jan Jongert and Jeroen Bergsma reversed the typical order of the design process—first house, then materials—and instead began by scouting the local area for items to recycle.

2012Architects have built a Netherlands house almost entirely out of locally sourced scrap, from old billboards to broken umbrellas.
A large part of the building materials used to construct this Eco Friendly House in Enschede, Netherlands, were salvaged from abandoned building sites. As much as 60 per cent of salvaged materials were used for the exterior of the house, and 90 per cent for the interiors. The architects used Google Earth to look for abandoned building sites in a nine mile radius around the plot, and then salvaged materials, that would otherwise have gone to waste!

Reclaimed lumber from an old Seattle Boeing plant is up for grabs?! Wish I lived closer. Great article about the history of the plant too!
After December 7, 1941 the Lockheed and Boeing aircraft factories along the West Coast were put under netting to try and hide them from Japanese aircraft attack. The Boeing plant went even further with fake houses and trees over the factory.
Aerial view of the Seattle Boeing plant from 2500 feet under camouflage to hide it from bombers. They built fake homes, trees, and roads on top of it. WWII.
In WWII, a fake neighbourhood was built on top of a Seattle Boeing factory. Built almost entirely from plywood and cardboard - with trees made from chicken wire and painted burlap - the town looked convincing enough from the air to hide the factory from any bombers flying by. Factory workers took a series of secret tunnels through fake cafes and shops to get to the factory each morning. This Boeing Plant built nearly 7,000 Flying Fortresses while being camouflaged by this fake neighborhood!
