Dermot Bannon's Incredible Homes
A world-famous architect takes viewers on a tour of remarkable homes and the people behind them, from Australia to Sweden and Ireland.
S01:E01 - Sydney
Dermot visits the award winning Cabbage Tree House, a stunning home embedded in the hillside of the suburbs of Bayview in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Designed by Peter Stutchbury, the cave-like house, with its outdoor bath and breath taking views, is home to Jan and Graeme Page. The 200 square metre house sits on 20,000 square metres of rain forest.
S01:E02 - Melbourne
Dermot visits the ‘cultural capital’ of Australia, Melbourne. Melbourne may not be known for its landmark buildings or dramatic skyline, yet its architecture is fresh, fun and playful.
S01:E03 - Sweden
Dermot arrives in Swedish Lapland in the depths of winter. Straightaway, he has to get to grips with the darkness and the severe weather. In the far North the sun doesn’t set at all in June and there is darkness around the clock in January. He discovers that rather than fighting against the darkness and the weather, Swedish design embraces them…and the results are enlightening.
S01:E04 - London
Dermot hops across the Irish Sea to have the proverbial nosey around some amazing houses. Dermot has been to London many times. As a student in Hull studying architecture, he would make his way down to the capital and wander around the streets, taking in the architectural landscape. Now, he gets to go inside!
S01:E05 - New York
Dermot begins his New York odyssey at a penthouse in a TriBeCa skyscraper with a million dollar view, followed by a Hamptons super home complete with basketball court and driving range, and the architectural wonder that is the ‘Farmhouse in a Hangar’ in New Jersey.
S01:E06 - Los Angeles
In LA Dermot visits a dream, floating glass house with spectacular views; the shimmering mirage Gold House in the Joshua Tree desert; and meets the Irish contractors building multi-million dollar homes on Billionaire’s Row.
