Designs for Life

4 x 52'

Four architects and four homebuilders who want to build dream homes - their very own designs for life. This series follows their stories from the birth of the design, through the arduous planning process, to the eventual dramas of construction and the stress of keeping schedules and budgets under control. The series was filmed over a remarkable period in Irish and world economic history. It began in the summer of 2006 when the economy was still roaring but as the projects developed the stakes got even higher as the economy suddenly began to collapse.
