Grand Designs Australia Series 5
Hosted by leading Australian architect, Peter Maddison, Series Five explores the motivations, memories and connections behind some of the most exciting and cutting edge new home builds ever seen.
In one of our most gruelling projects ever, there is the Queensland house made entirely out of shipping containers - with the singular aim of making the house water-tight after the family's previous house was devastated in the 2011 Queensland floods. The end result is jaw dropping - a design feat that belies the short six month time line.
Other fascinating stories include the Port Melbourne house where the exterior is made from 30 black, two-metre high water tanks; and the Mornington Peninsula modernist house that started as a six month project and blew out to four years - becoming the slowest build in Grand Designs Australia history. Once again, Grand Designs Australia brings the characters, the houses and the stories together for an insightful season of inspiration and appreciation.
