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.
