GRAND: Ben and Rachel Hammond with Kevin McCloud

A “modernist masterpiece” home, built on the northern fringe of Brockwell Park, Herne Hill, is to feature on the Channel 4 show Grand Designs tonight (Wednesday) at 9pm.

Read our interview with Rachel Hammond and Zac Monro

The episode will follow the story of Ben and Rachel Hammond, and Brixton architect Zac Monro, as they convert the former red-brick outbuilding of St Jude’s Church, Dulwich Road into a slick, modern family home.

Curious dog walkers and joggers have watched the building going up, and presenter Kevin McCloud come and go, because the plot juts out well into the park.

Another Brixton home to feature on Grand Designs is The Slip House, in Lyham Road.

  1. Hello, hope Rachel is still reading this. ….. We love your amazing house and would be extremely grateful if you could let us know who supplied your ‘rolling wall’. We are in the middle of renovating our house and it’s exactly what we are looking for, but we are struggling to source one. Many thanks
