They’re probably one of the more divisive things that appear on our landscapes, but during the 1970’s bungalows became a solution to the housing issues of the day.

Bliss Or Blight? Inside Ireland’s Love For Bungalows

00:00:00 / 00:00:00

A book, released by Irish architect Jack Fitzsimons, contained plans and explanations on how to build a bungalow, making home ownership accessible to a whole new audience.

As we went from bust to boom, boom to bust, bungalows have fallen out of fashion and out of favour.

But architect Hugh Wallace thinks there’s life in the old walls yet!

His new RTE show, My Bungalow Bliss, sees architects working with bungalow owners to make their dream home.

Hugh joined Dermot and Dave to chat about the show, his love for the bungalow, and why we shouldn’t rule them out yet!

You can catch the chat by clicking play above.
