Almshouses - Southwark

It's the sixth of the eight heats as three new designers battle it out for a place in the quarter-final.
This time the amateurs are creating interiors for three beautiful Georgian almshouses in Southwark, London. They will have 48 hours, £1,000 and the help of a builder to turn three sitting rooms into modern designs fit for the inhabitants of these 250-year-old homes.

42-year-old retail manager Neil from Brighton has a relaxed approach that sees him create a bicycle-themed sitting room. Events coordinator, 36-year-old Jane from Kent, is organised and on time to get her Moroccan-themed room finished, until she's asked to deliver some storage space; and mum Lorna from Birmingham, has to deliver a Casablanca-style sitting room, but is she trying to deliver too many ideas?

Architectural historian Tom Dyckhoff discovers the history of the almshouses, as judges Sophie and Daniel decide who has the winning design. With upcycling challenges, late deliveries and expectations high, only one can go through to the quarter finals.
