Aggrandised Designs

Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or are properties in this series of Grand Designs just the Emperor's New Clothes?

There are some in past series that have impressed me, such as the Woodsman's Cottage, but recently they are just over-priced tat dressed as desirability.

It reminds me of a bit from 'Absolutely Fabulous'. Patsy is showing people around her stark, white 60's 'ultra modern' living area with chrome dangly bits etc. She proclaims in a grandiose manner: "We feel it's progressive".

Properties on GD seem 'progressive' too. Providing you don't want to pay for them or live in them.

What was the budget for this one? we missed the first bit.

I thought that it looked rather ugly, and didn't really seem to fit into its surrounds. For sustainability and "green-ness" it didn't really seem to compare to Ben Law's house (houyse in the woods),
