About Grand Designs: The Street
Grand Designs: The Street focuses on Graven Hill and followed the first 10 ground-breaking pioneers as they built their very individual homes to form a street, and ultimately a community, like no other in Britain.
The series explored how self-build can be for everyone – whether you are retiring, a first-time buyer, upsizing or downsizing. Kevin McCloud, the series presenter, celebrates the creativity and design freedom the self-builders have, the forward-thinking planning process available and explores the challenges and community spirit when self-building.
Grand Designs: The Street also showed viewers the options they have when it comes to self-build, and that the process is far more accessible than they may think. The diverse range of homes on the street inspired others to consider building their own grand design or custom home at Graven Hill.
The series started on Thursday 4 April on Channel 4.
