Grand De­signs


Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

Kevin McCloud fol­lows soft­ware ex­ec­u­tive Andy and gar­den de­signer Nicki, who are plan­ning to build a ‘float­ing’ house on the Thames, which would be the first of its kind in the UK. Their ar­chi­tect has come up with an am­bi­tious, ex­per­i­men­tal de­sign that would see the whole property mag­i­cally rise up with the flood wa­ters. How­ever, no one knows whether it will work, and the project soon be­comes bogged down in the lo­gis­ti­cal chal­lenges of bring­ing to fruition such a com­plex struc­ture on a small is­land that is only ac­ces­si­ble by a nar­row foot­bridge.
