Pubcast #4 Building sustainable homes with Craig Jarvis

  • Smash Palace 172 High Street Christchurch, Canterbury, 8011 New Zealand (map)

Who: Craig Jarvis (a seriously clever architect)
What: Building sustainable homes that are good for us and the planet

Wanna know what it takes to build a truly sustainable home? Ever thought about how building materials in our homes can impact our health?

Architectural designer, Craig Jarvis will talk to us about why we NEED to be factoring sustainability into the design and build of homes in NZ.

Having spent 13 years in Melbourne running his own commercial building, project management and architectural design firm in Melbourne, Craig packed up and parked up in a 13sqm off-grid tiny home with his two young children.

Craig is now in the process of building his dream home at Taylor's Mistake. It will be New Zealand's first ever house designed to be a 'Living Building'.

Craig is passionate about the use of healthy and sustainable building materials in homes. A funny and engaging speaker, Craig has given a number of talks on the topic, including a TED Talk.


Each month, we host a free 'PUBCAST' at Smash Palace. It’s a bit like listening to a podcast but in a pub and with friends... way more social! πŸ‘Œ
