Ultimate recycling? This elegant contemporary house with pool was built entirely from old metal shipping containers.

A metal spiral staircase with a fleur-de-lis balustrade winds down into lush gardens inside this conservatory in Kew Gardens, London

This is a fascinating staircase. In place of railings is a solid sheet of metal that is intricately pierced for a lacy look of light and shadow… the dark color also beautifully sets off the varnished wood steps. Plus I love how the metal sheeting and handrail wrap sinuously around the support pillar at the foot of the stairs. Industrial, but elegant… would look marvelous in a loft.
