Brighton Waste House

Brighton Waste House‘There is no such thing as waste, just stuff in the wrong place’ is the idea behind the first permanent building in the UK to be built from waste materials.

Brighton Waste House, which was completed in April, was devised by University of Brighton lecturer Duncan Baker-Brown, and constructed by Brighton students and apprentices from The Mears Group.

The house uses discarded materials, including two tonnes of denim, 2,000 floppy discs and 20,000 toothbrushes, and a salvaged framework from a demolished house.

Incorporating clear panels to showcase the waste, Brighton Waste House is a live research and design project for Sustainable Design students and community workshops.
