They are the focal point of the famous show and include two fully built houses - a 21st Century thatched cottage and a three-storey apartment building - for visitors to explore, with the Chichester College students designing the rooms in each.

The design students have been working flat out to finish the many products that will feature, including furniture and wallpaper, in time for the show’s opening.
