BBC2 The £100k House: Tricks of the Trade

Late last summer a TV crew came along to visit us at Material Lab, from 'The £100k House' series on BBC2.

The crew were filming local London architect Gurmeet Sian guiding homeowners Suzanna and Antonio in the complete renovation of their flat.

Sian brought them to the lab to explore new material ideas, in particular, showing them how to add elements of luxury and quality to surfaces to make the most of small space, whilst sticking to a tight budget. His philosophy is to invest in the quality and design of surfaces you will touch and see everyday, making it a worthwhile long term investment and adding value to the property.

The show aired on BBC2 at 8pm last night, and you can catch-up on BBC iPlayer, here (and see us from 33 minutes in!).

We were delighted that Sian and the team decided to take their renovation research to us, and to kindly call Material Lab 'A treasure trove for architects and designers' — many thanks!
