Grand Designs House of the Year: shortlist heats up as winner is set to be revealed

The hunt for the UK's best home is set to conclude this evening, as Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud is set to announce the winner of this year's Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) House of the Year award.
 
During this month's special four-part TV series on Channel 4, McCloud has visited some of the UK's most spectacular homes and creative conversions.

Highlights from the six-strong shortlist so far include a flint-clad house resembling an Aztec temple; a property tucked behind a 19th-century stable wall in Kew, south-west London; and a family house built on the walled site of a former taxi garage that has six roofs joined to form vaults.
 
A final shortlisted building will be revealed during the final programme tonight, along with the winning project.
