Every year the Royal Institute of British Architects holds a competition to find the best new home in Britain and this time, Grand Designs is along for the ride.

Presented by Kevin McCloud and guest reporters Zac Monro and Michelle Ogundehin, this four-part series explores some of Britain’s most contemporary and cutting edge homes, all of them in the running for the prestigious RIBA House of the Year Award 2015.

Kevin and the team will meet the owners and architects who built them, reveal how these exemplary houses were constructed and uncover the secrets of designing and building a truly inspirational home.

From a house built over a river in Northern Ireland to a remote, renovated mill in Scotland and a bold, wooden shed in the eerie landscape of Dungeness, we take you behind normally closed doors to see some of the best new architecture in the country. In the final episode Kevin will exclusively reveal the overall winner of the RIBA House of the Year.
