Jamie Smallwood’s Luxury Container House – Australia

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Hi everybody,

Today we will show you the container house from Byron Bay, NSW – Australia.

Description from indoek

Meet Jamie Smallwood, a man of simple tastes and pleasures who lives completely off the grid in the secluded mountain rainforest area overlooking Byron Bay and all of its glory. Jamie is an architect by trade who focuses on sustainability in his design projects whenever he can.

His own home is a shining example of this; everything is recycled in some way. From the stacked, used shipping container structure, to the well-designed out house made of leftover materials, the palette wood patio, beer keg sauna, hempcrete walls, to even his own DIY surfboard quiver (by fashioning odd shortboard shapes out of broken longboards), Jamie “lets none of the beast go to waste” so to speak.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jamie at his very own Fortress of Solitude on a recent trip to Australia where we discussed design / build challenges, the changing hippy culture of Byron Bay, and the pros & cons of an off-the-grid lifestyle.
