Ki­wis build their for­ever homes

THE sec­ond se­ries of Grand De­signs New Zealand ex­plores the process of more in­cred­i­ble de­sign projects hap­pen­ing across the Ditch, as well as the per­sonal jour­neys of the peo­ple who are putting ev­ery­thing on the line to build them.

Right from the ini­tial blue­prints, through to the long and of­ten ar­du­ous task of turn­ing the plans into prac­ti­cal liv­ing spa­ces, cam­eras fol­low the tricky process of go­ing out­side build­ing norms.

Us­ing ar­chaic or new-school build­ing tech­niques and ma­te­ri­als, and lo­ca­tions from the beach to the moun­tains and the hills in be­tween, Grand De­signs NZ fea­tures houses rang­ing from ar­chi­tec­tural de­signer man­sions to a DIY home.
