Grand Designs TV houses are a pick of the most elaborate architectural projects undertaken by inspirational self-builders in the UK, and featured on the hit Channel 4 TV series hosted by Kevin McCloud. The unique interest of each house derives from its unusual features, the history of the plot, environmentally-friendly construction, or, sometimes, a small budget.
The Grand Designs TV series on Channel 4 follows the journey of each house from conception to design to construction, with a lead and commentary from Kevin McCloud. At Grand Designs Magazine, we explore each project in even more detail, including the architect’s designs, floor plans, incredible images, project cost information, plus exclusive interviews with the homeowners and TV presenter himself.
Discover more about the 800-year-old cave dwelling transformed into a twenty-first century home. Or the Water Tower in London, which Kevin McCloud described on the TV show as “a monster, a beast, a crumbling giant”. Or the Grade II listed lifeboat station in Wales, which is now a local landmark.
Plus, re-visit all your favourite Grand Designs TV houses, like the house that was made entirely out of shipping containers.
