Remarkable Television’s new design series Watch This Space will use virtual reality and visual effects for the first time on a British property show.
Watch This Space, presented by Angela Scanlon, will see ordinary homes transformed by architects Laura Clark and Robert Jamison into extraordinary spaces.
The episodes will follow two couples with conflicting ideas about the design of their homes as Clark and Jamison work with their different visions to create a unique design.
The homeowners will be able to explore the architects' designs using cutting-edge VR technology which will allow them to see rooms in their house transform, giving them a chance to decide on which design comes out on top.
“Watch This Space will ingeniously use virtual reality, so couples can try out new designs without lifting a rusty hammer or spending a single penny!” said presenter Angela Scanlon.
“I've lost weeks of my life trawling property websites and lingering too long outside the shiny windows of estate agents, so I am absolutely delighted to be involved in this ground-breaking series and to see technology being used in this way for the first time on a British property show."
Working to the homeowner’s budget, the architects will use their skills to take on challenging design tasks such as transforming a two-bedroom house into a spacious home for a family of five and relocating a bathroom upstairs.
“We are really excited about this original property format which is no average home build show," commented Kitty Walshe, Joint Managing Director of Remarkable Television. "We are taking ordinary homes and offering extraordinary transformations based on the homeowners own budgets and we are using technology in a way that has never been seen on British television before.”
Patrick Holland, Controller of BBC Two, added, “This is a really exciting combination of game changing technology and a terrific makeover show. It promises to be the next great property series on BBC Two.”
