Next Episode of Inside Out Homes is
The traditional home is changing as the boundaries between house and garden blur. Now architect Zac Monro, engineer Monty Ravenscroft and gardener Rosie Bines use imagination, technology and ingenuity to tear down the walls of seven houses across Britain, creating homes and outside spaces that unlock the potential of living inside and out like never before.
In the first episode, Zac and Monty create a glass atrium for an 18th century barn by covering a courtyard with a bespoke glass roof, while Zac designs a garden office that's both ancient and modern.
Architect Zac Monro comes up with a radical redesign of a 1950s bungalow in Stockport, including a new first floor clad in burnt timber and huge ground floor windows opening onto a garden with an outside sitting room and fire. In an incredible setting overlooking the Devon coastline, Zac designs a mirror image extension for an outdated family home. There's also an outside shower, swinging copper chair and some clever planting that blends with the wild fields and woodland beyond. Zac also visits an incredible award-winning house on the edge of the Norfolk Broads, where the windows frame the perfect views.
Zac Monro takes on a tiny 70s ex-council house in south London. His radical solution is to knock the house down and start again with an open plan design. In Jesmond, Newcastle, Abid and Sameena Nawaz hire Zac to update their 1940s home, including building a garden office and new kitchen. Zac and engineer Monty Ravenscroft transform the garden shed with mirrors and LED lighting, while gardener Rosie Bines plants a white garden to be enjoyed both day and night.
Zac Monro takes on a 1930s bungalow on a sought after estate in Newcastle. Although the house sits in the centre of a large garden, you would hardly know it. Zac's reinvention involves removing an entire brick wall and replacing it with glass and a deck immediately outside. Meanwhile, Monty Ravenscroft and Zac build a fire pit table that keeps you warm while you cook and Rosie Bines creates a scented oasis around the log-fired hot tub.
