BBC Two has commissioned Remarkable Television to make Watch This Space, a virtual reality property series.
Each episode will feature two couples who disagree about the best design solutions for their homes. Architects Laura Clark and Robert Jamison will be given the couple’s conflicting briefs to produce one design each, offering radically different proposals.
Working to the homeowner’s budget, they will be tasked with things such as making a two-bedroom house functional for a family of five and relocating a bathroom upstairs.
The homeowners will then be able to ‘step into’ and explore Robert and Laura’s designs using state-of-the-art VR technology.
Watch This Space was commissioned by Patrick Holland (pictured), channel editor, BBC Two and David Brindley, head of commissioning for BBC Popular Factual and Factual Entertainment.
The commissioning editor for the BBC is Michael Jochnowitz. It is executive produced by Joff Wilson for Remarkable Television.
Angela Scanlon will present the series, said: “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.”
Holland said: “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.”
