‘Grand Designs: House of the Year’ returns for a third series

‘Grand Designs: House of the Year’ is back on Channel 4 this autumn for a third series.

Presented by Kevin McCloud, the show will unveil a selection of homes in the running for the prestigious RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) House of the Year 2017 Award.

Kevin and his team of reporters will explore some of Britain’s most contemporary and cutting edge homes, revealing how they were built and why they are considered some of the best new architecture in the country.

Travelling across the land from Scotland to England and Wales, they will visit the owners and architects of some of these houses and uncover the secrets of designing and building them.

The final episode will exclusively reveal the winner of the RIBA House of the Year 2017.

Kevin commented: “We make this series not just to celebrate the finest homes in the land; but to can learn from them. What we see in the most exemplary houses today is going influence the design of more affordable new homes next year and in five and 10 years’ time. The series is a joy to film because it allows us to glimpse the future.”

RIBA president Jane Duncan added: “The RIBA House of the Year rewards the UK’s best new architect-designed houses. From the cleverest tiny house extensions to jaw-dropping one-off homes, this year’s series will shine a light on the incredible talent of brilliant architects – with, no doubt, some great insights from Kevin.”
