Presenter Kevin McCloud returns with the third volume from the fifth season of the Channel 4 series, which follows people as they undertake the arduous and expensive process of building their own dream home.
This 6th series of Grand Designs follows the stories of six ambitious couples pursuing their architectural dreams. Designer and writer Kevin McCloud witnesses the structural, financial and emotional journey of each build over many months as the plans unfold into buildings with their own unique stories and designs. This series features an enormous ultra modern house that has to blend into the Midlothian countryside, a space age minimalist white cube in Bristol and in Monmouth a couple set about the design and build of an 'Addams family' Gothic styled dream house. The only thing that each of the six featured constructions have in common is that they are new builds and started life as a blank canvas. Episodes include: Cheltenham: underground house, Bristol: sugarcube house, Monmouth: gothic house, Maidstone: futuristic bungalow, Midlothian: lime kiln house, Bath: pre-fabricated modernist family home.
In the eighth series of Grand Designs, Kevin McCloud is once again amazed by the ingenuity and determination of the families who set out to build their dream homes.
From an enormous loft-style apartment hidden underground in the middle of a field to a prototype factory-made kit house built in just four weeks, this series features more extraordinary builds where people risk everything.
Including eight unique and extraordinary builds.
Episodes include: Isle Of Wight: the tree house, The Cotswolds: the stealth house, Woodbridge: the modest home, Stowmarket: the Tudor guildhall, Ipswich: the radian house, Lizard Peninsula: the Scandinavian house, West Cumbria: the adaptahaus, Lake District: the dome house.
Series Nine of the landmark Grand Designs presents a whole new level of ingenuity, ambition and architectural wonder.
Expertly guided by the erudite Kevin McCloud, this series takes you on seven extra-ordinary builds…from the re-birthing of a dilapidated mill complex into a sustainable and dynamic dream home... the conversion of a crumbling boathouse on a pier... to the re-interpretation of a heritage listed barn into a contemporary museum-like home.
