Overview

Grand Designs Australia shares the stories behind some of the country’s most interesting builds, with compelling tales of inspiration, focus and dogged determination. Hosted by leading Australian architect Peter Maddison, Grand Designs Australia reveals the highs and the lows of taking on the biggest single investment of most people’s lives – creating their ideal home.

Amongst the spectacular new builds, Peter Maddison visits Tasmania, where two friends take on a very unconventional build as they try to incorporate a derelict windmill into a new home. Deep in the Victoria countryside, a couple convert a huge industrial shed into a home and cooking school. And attempts to build a cutting-edge eco-home on a budget prove difficult for a family in the Canberra suburbs.
