George in Grand Designs Mag!

If you turn to the back page of this week’s Grand Designs Magazine, you’ll find George staring in an interview talking about all things BVDS.

George chats through the story of how the company was started and how travelling with Ewald in a small camper-van taught them both a lot about adapting small spaces. He talks about Fleet Foxes inspired house extensions and where BVDS are heading for the future.

We think it’s a fun article that nicely sums up George and the workings of BVDS! So thank you Grand Designs for the feature. We’ll continue to be loyal readers.
