DVD coverNew Zealand is renowned the world over for its dramatic landscapes – and it is just as famous for its ground-breaking domestic architecture. Now home-grown Architect Chris Moller, whose enthusiasm for urbanism brings a new perspective on how building choices shape and reflect who we are and how we want to live travels to all corners of the country to bring you a fresh series of dream builds – and the unique characters behind them.

Just some of the innovative projects featured in Series 2 include an earthquake rebuild on a destabilised sand dune in Christchurch, a towering cliff-hugging architectural feat dreamt up by a ‘concretologist’, a modern day castle in alpine Queenstown, a family home made out of shipping containers, an experimental stilt house only metres from the waters of Wellington’s Kapiti Coast and a pioneering home made out of hemp in New Plymouth. It’s going to take guts, determination and passion to turn these dreams into reality…and Grand Designs New Zealand reveals the incredible personal stories behind each of these ambitious achievement.
