An Airstream in France: Part Two

an Airstream in FranceLast Friday we showed you some pictures of the minimalist Airstream en route to it’s owner’s holiday home in the South of France. As promised here are some pictures of it safely installed on the driveway. We could do with a bit of that lovely French sunshine over here right now.

An Airstream in France: Part One

an Airstream in FranceThe other week Darren travelled all the way down to the South of France to deliver the minimalist Airstream to it’s new home. The brief for this Airstream was to be low key, simple and not blingy – unlike our Lava Lamp Airstream which was featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces on Channel 4 earlier this week.

This Airstream is going to be kept in the South of France and used as an office and guest accommodation for owner Doug Hamilton of the Wham Agency. The design maximises the natural light and space in the Airstream which compliments it’s light and tranquil new location. It is also well insulated against extreme temperatures for when the snow falls in the mountains.

This first series of photos shows the Airstream in transit to it’s new location – Darren had fun getting it there – round a hairpin bend and up a steep slope! Come back next week to see more pictures of the journeys end as the Airstream is installed at Doug’s holiday home.

This Airstream is getting a full luxury refit so watch the blog for more pictures and info as the project takes shape over the coming months!

Some external shots of the Lava Lamp Airstream

Last week our brilliant photographer Jeremy Phillips popped back to visit customers Bernard and Sue Fontannaz, owners of the Lava Lamp Airstream to take some pictures of it in situ at their home in Oxfordshire. This Airstream is going to be featured in a TV series on Micro Design on Channel 4.

God Save the Queen! Happy Jubilee!

Here’s another piccie from the Lava Lamp Airstream – this table top was fitted especially for the Queen’s Jubilee as the Airstream will be used at a jubilee party at the client’s home this weekend where they will be showing off our handiwork for the first time. We hope you all enjoy the bank holiday weekend too!

Airstream Delivery

Here’s the Lava Lamp Airstream being delivered to it’s new home in North Oxford on Monday. This Airstream is going to remain in the garden as a spare room and place to entertain guests, rather than going on tour. Unfortunately there is no access to the back garden from the road so it had to be lifted into the garden by an enormous crane. A big crowd of people turned up to watch and it was also filmed by a TV Crew for a new TV series on Micro Design which will be aired on Channel 4 in the spring! Here’s some photos of it going in:

Lava Lamp Lighting

Back to the Lava Lamp Airstream today and a closer look at the lighting. As previously mentioned, the whole design is based on the inside of the Lava Lamp and there’s one recessed into the wall between the kitchen and the rear seating area:

Running along the ceiling is a panel fitted with hundreds of twinkling ‘stars’

There are also some LEDs positioned around the main seating area

Different lamps and spotlights are positioned throughout to illuminate the bathroom and the various cocktail making surfaces:

The mood lighting can be controlled by remote control with a round controller to alter the colour, the speed of the twinkling and flashing and the brightness of the lights in different areas. In combination with the surround sound stereo system and various gadgets such as the wine cooler and popcorn machine this Airstream has been a very interesting job for our electrician Terry who originally learned his trade as a helicopter electrician for the Royal Navy.
