Mary Martin and Carl Turner are a pair of minimalists who want to live in a stack of giant glass cubes. Which is fair enough, but these glass cubes will have to snuggle into the traditional Victorian terraces of Brixton in south London.
The couple have renovated houses in the past in their quest to make their homes as simple to live in as possible. But the cubes project is their biggest and most complex. It is also hugely expensive and pushes their finances as far as they can go.
Carl has to take on as many of the specialist jobs as possible and
the whole building work is on a knife edge – just the tiniest problem with the detail could be catastrophic.
Mary Martin and Carl Turner want to build a home that resembles a giant stack of glass cubes in Brixton, south London. The couple are hoping the structure will become an instant landmark, while on the inside they are planning a Zen retreat. But to succeed, their finances must be pushed to their limit, so Carl takes on as many of the specialist jobs as he can to save money. Kevin McCloud follows their progress.
