Like Anna Maria I would like to know when the next Series is starting.
I have seen all the series at least twice and would like to see new designs

When is your new series starting please? I have watched all the current offerings at least twice (and the Kynton home 7 times!). I agree with Mary about the Toowoomba house and felt really flat after watching it.

Could someone kindly advise me the piece of music that is played on both the English and Australian Grand Designs. Thanks

Can't wait for the next season to start.
Everyone i know keeps asking me when the show with my little building is on.
What am I, a copy of TV Week? Do I look like I have Daryl on the cover!!!
Peter Maddison was charming, insightful and supportive.
Hope everyone enjoys our Stanley job.

just like to say that I have really loved Grand Designs, just getting very board with the ultra modern, minimalist design that you seem to be following a lot lately . Please get back to stories like Trevor and Fran in the NT a few years back- also the latest English one S13,E2 - they are good stories to watch - hate the ultra modern minimalist boring designs where the "houses" don't even look like homes - thank you

Just watched the Toowoomba "English Farmhouse" episode and I am appalled at how low this version of Grand Designs can go.
There was nothing innovative or interesting about this build. It was just showcasing the owner’s own folly and delusions of grandeur about their unremarkable childhood. The grotesque nature of the building and its distinct unsuitability to the Australian landscape was almost sickening. In an age of eco-awareness, as Peter mentioned, there is nothing that commends this building as a “Grand Design”.

Why include it in the series in the first place?

Grand Designs traditionally has never been about how much money you can spend; if we all had money I’m sure we could all come up with a grand design of our own. The show was initially about true design- design that works with the landscape, with function, with lifestyle, with the environment, to be something we would be proud to include in our heritage, and to envision the future. Toowoomba "English Farmhouse" falls far short of this ideal.
It’s Very disappointing to see Lifestyle Channel condoning this sort of abysmal approach to environmentally friendly and sustainable housing. What a pity we cannot lead in great housing design, one that is attuned to our unique landscape, rather than follow an English formula.

WHO IS GLAD TO SEE GRAND DESIGNS UK COME BACK NOT ME I DO NOT LIKE THE PRESENTER OUR AUSTRALIAN PRESENTER HAS MORE PERSONALITY AND DOES NOT LOOK AS GRIM AND CRITICAL AS OUR UK PRESENTER.
