Returning: Grand Designs Australia

Grand Designs Australia returns next month with a new season kicking off with a one hour special Kevin McCloud’s Top 10 Grand Designs Australia.

The special is filmed in historic Homewood House in Surrey, England, with host Peter Maddison sitting down with Kevin McCloud, a cup of tea and an old fashioned slide slow to reminisce about highlights from the past six seasons.

A new season begins a week later.

Peter Maddison said, “Inventive building systems, wondrous materials and memorable form making has been applied to our wide brown land to produce a breathtaking collection of stories.”

In Grand Designs Australia, leading Australian architect Peter Maddison follows the process of turning ideas into reality, as people use design and architectural ingenuity to create an environment that best reflects their personality and ideals. Following 14 distinctive houses from concept to completion, the newest season premieres Thursdays from April 27 at 8.30pm on Lifestyle.

Perhaps one of the most unique builds of the season is a Japanese-inspired Queenslander home. Steve the owner was inspired by the minimalistic style of Japan, both architecturally and culturally. He employed a Japanese-based architect and a majority of the design process was conducted through Skype sessions.

Grand Designs Australia is produced by FremantleMedia Australia, exclusively for Foxtel’s Lifestyle.
