From a home created within an old electrical substation to another like a sprawling tent under canvas, from a home inspired by Japanese origami to another designed around a shipping container - these are the intriguing and resourceful design solutions featured in The Best of Grand Designs Volume 2, the much awaited sequel to the best-selling The Best of Grand Designs.
It features 24 inspiring homes that have featured in series six to eight of the iconic home design TV program, with projects straddling the continent, from Tasmania to Queensland, South Australia to northern NSW, in coastal, country and city locations.
As with its forerunner, the book is a tribute to Australian home owners and their architects and designers, who, undeterred by constraints such as a tight budget, a short timeline, a tricky site and heritage regulations, dared to dream and saw their grand visions become reality.
