The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes Plot: What is it about?
Piers Taylor and Caroline Quentin roam around the world to find exquisite homes that are extraordinary examples of architecture and design. Every episode is based on a specific theme. While Season 1 is based on the theme of geographical regions, Season 2 is all about different countries.
Season 1 takes the audience through extraordinary homes built on mountains, forests, coasts, and underground. Can you imagine a house built from the wings and tail fins of a disused Boeing 747? Well, we cannot. But, a creative homeowner in Santa Monica mountains can.
While in Arizona, Piers, and Caroline visit a house that has given a modern and innovative definition to a rammed earth house. The pine forest just outside Madrid might be quite ancient, but the contemporary house that is built right among the trees is anything but old-fashioned.
Piers and Caroline arrive at an island in Norway by a speed boat and decide to stay for two days instead of one. The adventurous four-bedroom house they are staying in is built on a footprint of just 100 square meters.
You imagined a house built from wings and tail fins, now, imagine a house invisible to the naked eyes, yet visible when looked at closely. Yes, the underground house that Piers and Caroline visit, is just like that. The 9 bedroom house is hidden by the green roof but still has an amazing sea view. However, the pool terrace and whitewashed walls are visible to the people.
Piers and Caroline, in Season 2, visit four different but amazing houses in Portugal and a tiny hamlet called Jeurs in Switzerland. Next, they travel to Japan and stay at the extraordinary House One in Izura. The U.S.A. has amazing architectural heritage and the hosts visit Florida to explore just that, along with some more insight into high-end designing.
They visit a beautiful waterfront house, a naturist pavilion, and a stunning home set on the stilts. When in Spain, they visit an extraordinary house that is completely circular in shape. The circular Solo House opens to the wilderness from the outside and offers peace and serenity on the inside.
The hosts visit Mumbai, India for their next exploration. The three modern houses are built near Mumbai, two of which are more in a rural setting. The exemplary Vega Cottage on the Vega island near the Arctic Circle is unlike any other cottages the hosts have ever seen. The season ends with Piers and Caroline visiting a mind-blowing J-House home in Israel, which is a palatial white house with supremely luxurious interiors.

The series, in its purest sense, is the perfect definition of aesthetics, and the show is meant for each and everyone without exception.
