Episode 1: Thornton Heath and Streatham

Summary

George Clarke helps unlock the potential of two houses in south London. He begins by helping NHS theatre nurse Hannah, whose Edwardian workers' cottage in Thornton Heath is so small she has had to give the only decent bedroom to her two children while she sleeps in the front room. Can he provide the luxurious master bedroom she needs? George also helps a couple renovate their Streatham home, which would not be so bad if not for the previous owners' love of glass chandeliers, Roman columns and marble-effect tiles.

Review

Architect George Clarke is something of a champion of small spaces. In the past he’s enthused over double-decker buses and underground toilets that have been converted into fabulous, if compact, homes. Here he visits a tiny Edwardian workers cottage in south London where a mum of two is desperate for her own bedroom (she currently sleeps in the front room). There were no previews available but apparently it’s more like a dolls house – astonishing to think it originally housed ten people.

The next project is decidedly bigger: a four-bedroomed house with a glam Italianate decor where the current owners need a grown up sitting room.
