“Home” by Apple TV+ is a new documentary series exploring the world’s most innovative dwellings

Apple TV+ has revealed a new documentary series that offers viewers a never-before-seen look inside the world’s most innovative homes. 

Called Home, a new docu-series discovers the groundbreaking ideas and inspiring stories behind the world's most imaginative buildings.

Each episode explores the conventional concepts which were developed based on their own contextual references and pushes the ways of rethinking how we live. The first season includes 9 episodes, including innovative dwellings from Sweden, Chicago, Bali, Hong Kong to Maine, India, Austin, Malibu, Mexico. 

Each episode unveils the boundary-pushing imagination of the visionaries who dared to dream and build them. Varied in selection, the projects in the episodes focus on different aspects of design, such as the efficient use of materials, the use of local references, the design of different spatial configurations and the needs of a local dwelling in the pre-construction phase.
