We are delighted that our Directors George and Ewald will be back on our screens tonight presenting a second series of ITV1’s Love Your Home and Garden. Alongside fellow presenters, Alan Titchmarsh, Katie Rushworth and Kunle Barker, George and Ewald will transform the homes and gardens of deserving people across the country.
In the first episode, George and Ewald convert the home of Benita and her 15-year-old son Josh, who lives with multiple disabilities and uses a wheelchair. As it is, the house is challenging for them to live in and prevents them from doing the things they enjoy. Like any 15 year-old boy, Josh loves the outdoors but due to the layout and restrictions in his home, is unable to access parts of the house and can’t get into his garden meaning he is increasingly confined to the house. Benita loves cooking, but the kitchen is too small for her to be together with Josh.
In the programme, George and Ewald create a new layout in the semi-detached house so that Benita can wheel Josh from the front door out to the back garden with ease and relocate the previous tiny, inaccessible kitchen into a state of the art glasshouse so Benita and Josh can cook together for the first time.
‘Working on the show with Alan Titchmarsh and the team has been a real privilege for us as architects. We both believe in the power that good design has to change peoples’ lives. To transform the homes of families who have faced consistent challenges and to be able to empower them, through their newly designed homes to achieve independence, happiness and increased well-being/comfort is why we do what we do” George Bradley, Director
