Honoured to co-present my third series of Channel 4’s Grand Designs: House of the Year. Fronted by the one and only Kevin McCloud, and alongside architect Damion Burrows. Tx November 2018.
Screened as four primetime programmes for Channel 4, the episodes unveil the homes in the running for the prestigious RIBA House of the Year award for 2018. To find a winner we travelled from Newcastle and Northern Ireland to Henley on Thames, and visited some of Britain’s most contemporary and cutting edge houses. Our quest? To find out why they’re considered to be some of the best new architecture in the country. And Kevin revealed the 2018 winner in the final episode on Wednesday 28 November.
In the first programme the theme was ‘Houses That Dare to be Different’. And I was lucky enough to visit two of the long-listed houses, Pheasants in Henley and Ouseburn Road in Newcastle. Click links for a full project description, pictures and plans!
In programme two, themed ‘Houses with a Past’, I visited the amazing Coastal House, designed by 6A and my very favourite home by far. Modest on the outside but such a joyful celebration of space, light, texture and volume inside. Click link for a full project description, more pictures and plans.
This episode was all about ‘Extreme Houses’ from a far flung Crofter’s cottage to a curvy concrete house and even one shaped like a wedge.
This episode was all about houses that use materials in unusual ways. I visited a house in Berkshire, designed by Gregory Phillips Architects. The result of one couple’s dream to create a home for their family forever.
