Grand De­signs

Isis Town and Country - - TELEVISION -

Sun­day, ABC1, 7.40pm

Tonight’s voyeuris­tic peek into a homee build errs on the side of quirky, rather than grand. Host Kevin McCloud’s (right) cu­rios­ity is piqued by Welsh­man Nigel Hussey and his Ja­panese wife Ta­mayo’s mis­sion to cre­ate an “au­then­tic” Ja­panese sanc­tu­ary in the mid­dle of the serene Wales coun­try­side. To make mat­ters even more in­ter­est­ing, their project doesn’t be­gin from scratch. In­stead, they take on the chal­lenge lenge of trans­form­ing a worn ’60s ma­sonry house into their dream Ja­panese abode, com­plete with paper slid­ing walls, a tatami roomm and a Ja­panese bath tak­ing in the mag­nif­i­cent views from the roof. A re­fresh­ing change fromm homes that are chas­ing the lat­est trends.
