Grand De­signs

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Sun­day, ABC, 7.40pm

The jux­ta­po­si­tion be­tween the beau­ti­ful Ir­ish coun­try­side and a strik­ing mod­ernist de­sign make tonight’s view­ing a spe­cial treat. Host Kevin McCloud (right) meets am­bi­tious young ar­chi­tect Pa­trick Bradley, who has de­signed a home for him­self in the idyl­lic sur­rounds of County Derry, in North­ern Ire­land. Bur rather than tak­ing his cues from the rus­tic sur­rounds of na­ture, Bradley’s blue­print is a cel­e­bra­tion of his love of mid-cen­tury de­sign and clean, bold lines. Even Pa­trick’s fam­ily seem a lit­tle wor­ried about his plans to use ship­ping con­tain­ers as his build­ing’s main com­po­nent but the end re­sult is amaz­ing.
