Here are some professional shots of our latest completed project – the Dubai Airstream. This Airstream is now finished and ready to leave our workshop to begin the long journey to it’s new home in Dubai where it will be used for entertaining and business. All photos by our wonderful photographer Jeremy Phillips.
The side of the Airstream folds down to create a decking / lounge area – perfect for entertaining in sunnier climes…
There is also a pull-out awning to protect from the sun
Inside the Airstream features a gold upholstered cocktail cabinet and a recurring burkha design
Colour changing mood lights throughout and our trademark twinkling starry ceiling set the mood for entertainment or business.
A lava lamp is recessed into one of the worktops
In the ARC workshop today: This fabulous golden cocktail bar is under construction in the Dubai Airstream – one of our luxury Airstream refit projects which is being shipped out to Dubai once it is completed.
The bar was decorated by our new upholsterer, Chris Burns. Chris renovates VW campers and will be joining ARC soon – so we will become even more of a hub for all things retro! You can also see in this picture that this Airstream is being fitted with one of our classic ‘starry sky’ lighting designs with twinkling, colour-changing LEDS set into the ceiling.
Meanwhile one of our early projects, the Weber Barbecue Airstream has come back to the workshop for a service and buff and polish ready to hit the road again this summer as it tours the UK demonstrating the delights of Weber barbecues. You can see more pictures of this Airstream project on our website gallery page and blog.
In the workshop today – this stage area is being created on the Dubai Airstream. Once finished, this deluxe project is going to be shipped out to Dubai where the Airstream and stage will be used for special events and weddings.
We have now closed our workshop for Christmas and we will be back hard at work on the 4th January with lots of exciting new projects to show you in the new year, for now here’s a bit of Christmas bling:
This Airstream 280 project is now complete – we’ve had a photoshoot with our photographer Jeremy and will show you the results in our next blog post:
And here are a couple of interior shots of the work in progress on the Dubai Airstream – our blingiest project to date:
In the workshop today: this Airstream is being fitted with a polished brass end cap:
Meanwhile, Darren and Dave are discussing the cocktail cabinet which is going to be fitted into the Dubai Airstream:
This Airstream project is finished and has just had an expert shoot with our fabulous photographer, Jeremy Phillips.
The interior design for this Airstream project was inspired by the Ralph Lauren Corral Canyon Collection and ARC designer Kathy was in her element designing and sourcing the materials for the interior. You may have seen some shots of this Airstrream as a work-in-progress on our blog as we laminated the interior with that exquisitely patterned pippy oak which compliments the rest of the interior perfectly with a comfortable, American home feel.
After the Whaletail Airstream made it’s way to a new home last week, we’re getting stuck into our next project already: taking out the interior of this vintage Airstream, ready for a luxury refit. This Airstream is going to have a very decadent and luxurious interior and will be shipped out to a client in Dubai once it is finished.
As always we’ll be blogging every step of the process, so watch this space to see this Airstream being transformed by our dedicated team in the coming months!
Here it is: all finished and delivered to our client who is a film director and wants it as a home from home when he’s filming on location.
This camper has been panelled with wood throughout to give it a rustic feel and has a wood burner, copper kitchen worktops and copper-fitted bathroom, with an office at the back for business. The large leather sofa in the lounge is seated on a section of the RV which pulls out, to create more space when it is parked up; and the two seats in the cab have been upholstered to match. The sofas also transform into two king-sized sofa beds. These photos are by our amazing photographer, Jeremy Phillips.
In the workshop today: here are some more snaps of the Winnebago which is almost ready to go to it’s new home as a location vehicle for a film director.
Here you can see the American icon is now looking rather rustic and romany, with copper worktops and fittings in the kitchen, a Belfast sink, plus a copper shower. Everything is panelled with wood – floors, walls and ceilings – and the shower room has a porthole window. This RV is also fitted a wood-burner and large leather sofas that pull out into beds.
Outside it is no longer off-white, but a fab shade of British Racing Green.
In the workshop today. We’re renovating the exterior on this vintage Airstream which is another new luxury restoration project for 2015:
Meanwhile the Winnebago is being fitted with a new aluminium roof:
