Grand Designs 11-2
Torquay ‘Raw Concrete’, VIC. If opposites attract, Fiona and Sal are a match made in heaven. He loves the beach but she hates sand, she likes cafes and shopping, while he’s happiest hanging out at home with his turtles. Finding some middle ground isn’t always easy, but their biggest challenge to date is agreeing on the location and design of their new home! The solution: Sal gets to decide its location – just a few streets back from the rolling surf at Torquay in Victoria – and Fiona gets to decide the design – a Modernist, super-contemporary home, made 100 per cent from concrete! With Sal’s increasing concerns the house is going to look like a giant crypt, compounded by the stress of an ever-expanding budget and growing timelines, tensions reach an all-time high. Can Fiona keep the project on track, and deliver the slick, elegant concrete house of her dreams or will it end up an expensive drab box? First Broadcast: Wed, Feb 1, 2023
Another interesting episode but I can’t help but wish this concrete fad will fade. I understand not having rugs to trip people with visual loss but it just looked so stark. They took out the party at end because nobody feels comfortable there. Not even S&P in the kitchen or a dresser in the bedroom.
