Grand Designs is a property show which follows architects as they attempt to build interesting and unique houses. Tonight, Kevin McCloud will embark on a nationwide mission to find visit of the most jaw-dropping properties in the country. He will see a number of properties which are in the running for 2019 Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) House of the Year. The houses are all one of a kind and have pushed boundaries, so which will win the prestigious award?
Kevin McCloud, who writes and presents the property show, will be joined on the mission by co-presenters, architect Damion Burrows and design expert Michelle Ogundehin.
Property fans will watch on as they visit some of the most spectacular houses in the running for the title.
The homes will take a punt at the RIBA House of the Year title, which is given to the best example of a unique design by an architect in the UK.
The presenting trio will see the experimental houses which have made the list for pushing the boundaries of conventional designs.
Among the contenders is a Derbyshire stone cottage, a South Downs family home with a vaulted interior and an ultra-low energy house in Buckinghamshire.
In the series, Kevin will also take a look at a creative stunning micro home which was built in a double garage in London.
Tonight, property fans will watch on as he inspects a pioneering home in Eton which has been made entirely from cork.
The sustainable creation is tucked in the back garden of the homeowners, Matt and Dido, and is described as the first of its kind in the UK.
Inside, the property boasts a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and hidden sleeping area.
Speaking of how the house was built, Matt said: “It’s quite primitive, caveman stuff. It’s half a metre thick blocks of cork one on top of the other with no glue or water.”
