Dermot Bannon on Ireland's "unhealthy obsession with property"

Donal O’Donoghue catches up with popular architect Dermot Bannon to talk family matters, home truths and obsessions He also meets Room To Improve’s new quantity surveyor, Lisa O’Brien.

“Yes, we have an unhealthy obsession with property, but this show is about design and how a well-designed space can nurture your soul. I do think we are obsessed with how much our homes are worth and that got us into huge trouble. We see property as a commodity and not as a home.”
