Grand Designs Australia

Peter Maddison reveals why this season of Grand Designs Australia is so exciting

Grand Designs Australia season eight could be the most extreme series yet.

Season eight of Grand Designs Australia is unique because it brings all the components together that I've been hunting for, over the last seven years.

There's great architecture (by some of the country's best architects), extraordinary locations that stretch right across this great country of ours and great homeowner personalities who risk it all to follow their passion.

There are a few episodes that I found incredibly touching because of how much people give up to make these amazing places.

For instance, the home in Rivett, Canberra, is extraordinary because the house is an absolute reflection of the owner. I just love the idea of people breaking out of convention and creating things that are uniquely themselves - true to their budget and expression of architecture. 

I just hope you love it as much as I've loved making it. 

Stream or watch season eight of Grand Designs Australia, from Wednesday 17th July at 8.30pm AEST on Lifestyle.
