Channel 4 series Grand Designs has seen all kinds of buildings featured over the years. Kevin McCloud first began showing off all kinds of incredible properties in 1999 and since then, there’s been no shortage of awe-inspiring houses to take a look at. In 2022, a couple are building a round glass home…
Kevin McCloud kicks off season 22 with a showstopper of a home. So, let’s take a look at the curved glass house from episode 1, thought up by couple Adele and Colin Offland. They hired a team who hail from all over the world to complete their build.
Grand Designs’ glass home
During Grand Designs season 22 episode 1, host Kevin meets couple Adele and Colin who have an ambitious plan to create an eye-catching family home.
Colin and Adele employed an architect from Sweden, an interior design company from Italy and a building team from Latvia to complete their build.
Their home is made of curved glass and comes complete with ‘living walls’ per I Want Plants’ Instagram post.
Where is the house located?
Colin and Adele opted to go back to their roots and build a family home in South Manchester,
