Kevin appeared on Top Gear in 2008 and Kevin McCloud's Grand Tour of Europe on Channel 4 in 2009. He presented Slumming It in 2010 and continues to appear at the hugely successful Grand...

Kevin was awarded two honorary doctorates, from Plymouth and Oxford Brookes, primarily for getting rid of the capital 'A' from architecture. He is a recalcitrant patron of several architectural and sustainable charities, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Foresters and a WWF Ambassador. He was awarded an MBE in 2014 for services to sustainable design and energy saving property refurbishment.

When not filming, Kevin runs a product design practice. He has designed lighting for some of the finest buildings in Europe and many great houses - Ely Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle, two European palaces, the Savoy and Dorchester hotels, to name a few. Kevin has also written numerous highly acclaimed books.

Kevin is a much sought-after speaker and awards host in the corporate sector.
