Why are our homes so often designed to be so serious, and dominated by the purely practical? Surely there’s space for a bit more fun isn’t there? That’s what Matt and Sophie White from Sussex believe. They want to build a giant family house of fun for themselves and their three children. It’ll be a mysterious black, zinc-clad home kitted out with a revolving bookcase door, secret dens, hiding places behind one-way mirrors, and a fireman’s pole that takes you from floor to floor – just like an episode of Scooby Doo.

Unusually Matt wants the house to evolve, both during the build and in the future, so he uses a steel frame system which means they can change the layout whenever they want. There are other changes too – like amending the window shapes and sizes and adding a new half floor to create a James Bond room. This approach of designing and altering things as the build progresses, along with all the unusual playful features, proves somewhat disorientating for the builders, and Kevin. Just what will this house look like in the end?
