Weird and Wonderful Homes

Every year more and more people around the world are designing and building their own homes. The popularity of TV programmes like 'Room to Improve' and 'Grand Designs' have given people the inspiration to make unique houses unlike anything around them.

The designs and architecture we found show us that there is no limit to how the brain works when designing a house for a home.
