Clear Architect’s Design Chosen By Channel 4 Show

A new Channel 4 homes show – Best Laid Plans – is due to feature our prestigious new build home 40 Hill Road, in Theydon Bois, on  9 December.

The programme is hosted by one of TV’s favourite architectural designers, Charlie Luxton, along with property developer Sophie Morgan, who help homeowners undertaking large-scale renovations to resolve their design dilemmas. Our project 40 Hill Road is used in the trailer for each episode and will feature in Episode 8, to be aired on 9 December at 4.30pm. (It was previously scheduled for the week earlier).

Best Laid Plans was drawn to the project because its internal layout encapsulates broken-plan living. Its stunning kitchen, dining area and lounge are set on 3 levels to create different zones, but with an open-plan flow. It was this floorplan which also captured the attention of Grand Designs magazine, as an example of how contemporary modern living can look.

“We are always excited to see any of our projects chosen for television, as we know competition to be featured is extremely fierce. 40 Hill Road was a pivotal project for us. This new show illustrates the enormous design decisions that both us, as architects, and the clients go through to create these amazing spaces.” Melanie Clear
