Luxury comes in all shapes and sizes, and in the case of Contained, a pop-up hotel on Sydney’s Cockatoo Island, it comes packed in a 20-square-metre shipping container.

With glass bi-fold doors, matte tapware, timber deck and water views, it feels very much like a trophy home, only smaller – and that is exactly the point that Contained creators Anatoly Mezhov and Irene Polo aim to make.
