Summary: Award-winning architect Piers Taylor and actress and property enthusiast Caroline Quentin (who previously presented Restoration Home for BBC Two) explore a range of incredible architect-designed houses in extreme locations around the world. Whether built into the side of a cliff, nestled in a forest, perched at the top of a mountain or under the earth, these are homes that connect to their environment in a spectacular way. Each episode of the 4x60' series is themed according to the houses' environments - Coast, Forest, Mountain and Underground, with Caroline and Piers travelling to locations ranging from North America, Australasia and Europe. To explore how these dramatic designs function as both works of architecture and as real houses, they stay overnight, eat meals and spend time in the homes. Piers and Caroline are a new and entertaining pairing of a property expert and an architect, both bringing their own expertise, humour and experience as they meet some of the owners and architects of these incredible buildings.

Summary: Piers Taylor and Caroline Quentin head to Israel, where they discover four extraordinary homes, designed to combat the heat and inspired by rich cultural and historical traditions. Among the properties are Barud House in Jerusalem, made from 50,000 white stone tiles, arranged into a symmetrical pattern that casts shadows across the house all day. The final stop is the village of Musmus and the House of Three Gardens, where Tel Aviv architect Ron Fleisher has designed a house that combines traditional Islamic architecture with modernism.
