Grand Designs NZ
Every architect or designer secretly would love to have a project on Grand Designs, I do believe that.
I was lucky enough to show case my own home. Designed and built by myself. Huge learning, hugely difficult due to the design, the access, and the objective of making this house completely solvent free, non-toxic and healthy, and off the grid.
A massive learning for every architect or designer, would be to design and build their own home. I am surprised to realise how many have not had the opportunity unfortunately. The learning through this process is invaluable.
10 years of research has gone into building this home, the way I needed it to be, the materials, the methods, the systems used. A full scale experiment that has worked beyond my wildest expectations.
It proves we can do this this in New Zealand.
