New episodes of Grand Designs Australia return to the LifeStyle Channel next month.
Season Three will premiere on Thursday October 18 at 8.30pm AEDT. The eight part series from FremantleMedia Australia has taken more than 12 months to film.
Host Peter Maddison said, “Grand Designs Australia Season 3 sees some incredible designs built with exotic materials proving there is no one answer when it comes to selection or style.
“All the brave homeowners are searching for the right answer and I’ve enjoyed trying to find the truth in each.”
Duane Hatherly, General Manager, LifeStyle Channels and Head of Production Foxtel Networks added, “This series is a signature LifeStyle Channel program that is aspirational and accessible as well as authentic and emotional. From the brilliant and varied locations; to the vast scope of the projects undertaken; and the breath-taking architectural results; Grand Designs Australia is arguably one of the most majestic productions on Australian television.
“We are incredibly proud of this show and the successful migration of the iconic franchise to Australia with our own Peter Maddison at the helm. Australians building their dream homes really is a transformative journey and I believe we have captured that again in the third installment of the series.”
Grand Designs Australia charts the in-depth process of elaborate design projects undertaken by self-builders – from the initial details of blueprints, to the long and often arduous task of turning the designs into a practical living space.
No design is too ambitious when it comes to creating your dream home. But discovering the hard realities that complicate your plans can often be too much to bear. From a unique grass covered dome-shaped house on a picturesque hillside; to a timber clad house with Japanese influences and a wrap around pool; and a house that re-defines east coast beach living; Grand Designs Australia follows not only the growth of these special homes, but the personal journeys of those building them.
Leading Australian architect Peter Maddison hosts the series. With over 25 years experience, his projects include a huge range of award-winning residential and commercial work and he has a deep understanding of Australian architecture and our climate, culture and history.
