Ecoshack began in 2003 as an experimental design lab in Joshua Tree, CA. Today it's also an LA-based design studio inspired by the ad hoc, indigenous and archetypal typologies typically found at the fringes of society.

Ecoshack founder Stephanie Smith is a champion of light and nomadic lifestyles. Her ideas on low-impact design, mass production and alternative forms of community have made her “one to watch” in the worlds of architecture, design and culture.
