Grand Designs Australia: Series 7
Hosted by Peter Maddison, Grand Designs Australia tells the stories of new homes and the people who are building them. The series charts the in-depth process of elaborate design projects undertaken by self-builders – from the initial details of blueprints, to the long and often arduous task of turning the designs into a practical living space.
Part 1: Bondi Urban Cliff
Brendan and Penelope dream of a multi-tiered, multi-million dollar home, complete with infinity pool on the side of a cliff in Bondi. But when they constantly change plans, will it ever be finished?
Part 2: Maianbar Laminated Timber
Sydney couple Phil and Ariana want an adventurous house, something cutting edge that hasn’t been done before. This special house will cantilever out from their block and overlook the water at Maianbar.
Part 3: Verrierdale Tent House
Inland from Noosa in a lush tropical landscape sits Nick and Nicole’s sail house. They have a daring design which they hope will look like a yacht moored on dry land and provide them with a true adventure in paradise.
Part 4: Hillbank Medieval
Anglican Reverends Neil and Ruth have long harboured a desire to build their own home in the style of a Tudor farm house featuring timber boards and a church-like interior of hand-crafted exposed structural beams.
Part 5: Ocean Shores Chipboard
GP Zewlan and her electrician husband Tom want an architect designed home in a great location on shoestring budget. Working within a tenuous loan framework, what they create is inspiring.
Part 6: Kensington Curvy
Architect Tim Hill has made his name designing small, radically shaped, timber houses. Now it’s time for Tim’s family to up-size to a new house that will be curvaceously shaped like a foot.
Part 7: Aldinga Beach Dune
Set on a small block overlooking the Southern Ocean, this three-pod home straddles a pair of four-meter high sand dunes on the protected Aldinga Scrub conservation area on the South Australian coast.
Part 8: Glass Stone House
Six years ago Louise and Steve bought two acres of a rambling English garden in the Adelaide hills. Using the local stone their dream home will be a rustic two storey stone farm house with a modern twist.
Part 9: Japanese Queenslander
Steve Minon has a fascination for things Japanese. He fell in love with the work of an iconic Japanese architect Yo Shimada, who he contacted to design a house for him.
Part 10: Kevin McClouds Top 10 Grand Designs Australia
Kevin McCloud and Peter Madison talk Kevin’s favourite ever Grand Designs Australia moments. Set in historic Homewood House in Surrey, England, Grand Designs Australia host Peter Maddison and Grand Designs host Kevin McCloud sit down with a cup of tea and an old fashioned slide slow to reminisce about the design features of each of the ten homes, selected from the past six seasons.
