Located on the University of Brighton campus, the 'Waste House' was designed by Sussex studio BBM architects in conjunction with several undergraduate students.
The house, which is entirely constructed out of waste products, will serve as a research and design workshop space for the University's Faculty of Arts. The structure was physically put together by apprentices from Mears, a social housing maintenance provider, and other volunteers.
With walls that are made from used carpet tiles and insulated with junk, the house is intended to showcase the appropriate use for discarded materials. BBM director Duncan Baker-Brown explains, "It's about proving that you can build something with other people's stuff, and that you can make a permanent building out of rubbish."
