The Recycled Materials Cottage reminds me of Frankenstein’s monster. This is due to the fact that it was made from different parts of other homes. Of course, this fact is far from creepy; instead, it is closer to being incredibly encouraging considering its low impact on the environment.

Designed by architect Juan Luis Martínez Nahuel, the Recycled Materials Cottage is a beautiful wooden cabin that is nevertheless very modern as well. Its open, airy design lets in a lot of natural light, thanks to glazed doors from a 1960s Horacio Borgheresi house. The home is located in Chili, where lush vegetation and foliage abounds; the numerous windows also allow a stunning view of its surroundings.

I especially like how the Recycled Materials Cottage looks like it's floating slightly above the ground.
