fac­tual / 9pm / C4

the hunt to find the royal in­sti­tute of Bri­tish ar­chi­tects’ House of the year 2018 con­tin­ues. This time the fo­cus is on build­ings with a past that have been made into the most spec­tac­u­lar mod­ern homes. Kevin Mc­cloud, ar­chi­tect Damion Bur­rows and de­sign ex­pert Michelle Ogun­de­hin have five of the very best to view, be­gin­ning with a char­ac­ter­ful old gin dis­tillery in east Lon­don. There’s also a farm­house in Devon that per­fectly mixes the old and new, a house built in 1790 in Bath that now in­cludes an ul­tra­mod­ern ex­ten­sion, a 400-year-old farm­house res­cued from the very brink of col­lapse and, fi­nally, a unique home in­spired by a shed that in­cludes a mir­rored li­brary at its heart.
