Next Episode of Grand Designs: House of the Year is
Every year the Royal Institute of British Architects looks for the best new home in Britain, and this time Grand Designs is along for the ride.
The Local Materials category include an upscale shepherd's hut, a sleek Modernist house in Bath, and a London townhouse
This time, five designs with a watery connection, including a glamorous white, curvy, cliff-top home, a cork-clad house on stilts, and a unique home in London, with porthole windows and a gangplank
This time, the shortlist for the Royal Institute of British Architects House of the Year includes a luxurious tree house and a converted 17th century barn in Devon.
In this final episode, Kevin McCloud reveals the winner of the most prestigious prize for residential architecture: the Royal Institute of British Architects House of the Year 2017. But first, Kevin, the architect Damion Burrows, and Michelle Ogundehin, editor-at-large of Elle Decoration, sift the final category from the long list, all of them homes that share a pared-back, minimal look. First, on the site of a former caretaker's shed in London, they visit a small but perfectly formed home with oak panelling and sleek polished concrete floors. In Suffolk, a suite of three buildings clad in flint and burned larch, are wrapped around a Persian-inspired courtyard. There's a finely crafted contemporary home packed onto a tiny site in south London; and finally, a luxurious family home, complete with swimming pool, built out of smoked oak and brick.
