LAURA JANE CLARK
The reigning Queen of VR
The brilliant, creative and stylish Laura Jane Clark is returning to Your Home Made Perfect. Her spectacular design-led solutions are always ingenious and beautiful. Based in Glasgow, she’s a hands-on architect, who thinks nothing of taking a sledge-hammer to a wall having started her career working on building sites. Fearless, and with extraordinary vision, Laura can turnaround the impossible; having transformed underground public toilets into an extraordinary home. With two series behind her Laura has shown what she is capable of, but this time she’s going even bolder and sassier than before.
The emerging star
Julian Mcintosh is one of the youngest and brightest stars in architecture. His training has taken him far and wide, starting in Huddersfield, then to China and Spain for 2 years and finishing in London. After completing his training, he spent three years at a high end residential London practice designing luxury homes before setting up his own architecture company. Determined to bring premium architecture to the wider community and make it more accessible to people from all backgrounds, this young black architect brings to the industry a surprising and fresh perspective, not scared to present controversial and brave designs to his clients to achieve the most favourable use of space - he’s an exciting one to watch!
The dream maker
Lynsey is unassuming and thoughtful; climbing into her clients’ heads to absorb their wish lists before creating the space they’d always dreamt of, but never been able to imagine. From Northumberland, Lynsey is our humble, rural and a truly brilliant architect. Her designs change according to her subject and she’s just at home creating a Skandi cabin or a modern glass pavilion. Absolutely obsessed with detail and practicality her spaces work perfectly, and look incredible too. But don’t underestimate her warm approach, she’s determined to win.
The risk taker
A quirky risk taker, Will’s taken the architecture world by storm, recognised for his stunning buildings and his maverick approach. A former apprentice blacksmith from Somerset, he loves to work with what already exists, encouraging his clients to rethink what’s already theirs. With sustainability at the forefront of his design thinking, he advocates working with local resources and suppliers. Fascinated by materials, and how they are interpreted, he prides himself on creating simple but completely unpredictable designs that delight and entertain.
Lizzie is obsessed with stories: she picks at them, unravels them and tells new ones, and it’s this same principle she applies to architecture. She is passionate about working on existing buildings and discovers everything about the buildings she works on: digging into their history, exploring the surrounding landscape and getting to know the people who live there. She then uses this intel to feed her creativity as she reimagines it, as well as integrating an environmental approach which is a key driver in all of her design work. Known for her exquisite, intricate designs she believes everyone should have pockets of luxury in their homes. Clever, painstakingly detailed and highly competitive, Lizzie brings attitude and style to all her projects and is a force to be reckoned with
The enigmatic reinventor
At the age of 21 Damion was transforming nightclubs in Manchester with outrageous and brilliant sets. Inspired by design, he headed to university in his mid-20s to study interior design before moving into architecture. His understanding of buildings, inside and out, has led to an fascination of texture and raw materials. He’ll often be found exposing the bones of original buildings in search of space or a fresh perspective, and he can transform the most mundane building materials into million pound looking solutions. Approaching every project with flare and creativity Damion creates exciting, contemporary homes.
Your Home Made Perfect begins Monday, 24 May at 8PM on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
