So the Lava Lamp Airstream is pretty much finished and last week our excellent photographer, Jeremy Phillips came in to take some shots for us which have attracted a lot of discussion and a very positive reaction on our Facebook page and over 100 new ‘likes’.
The Lava Lamp Airstream was designed for our client who is in the wine trade, as an unusual and exciting space for entertaining guests in his garden. As a temporary static structure it requires no planning permission as it will be listed as a garden structure. It can be used as a spare room for visitors and also a very funky party space. Next month we will be delivering it to his home and installing it with a crane as there is no rear access to the building – and yes we will put some pictures of this exciting development on the blog!
The colour scheme in the Lava Lamp Airstream is based on the inside of a lava lamp. It is equipped with everything our client might need for a party, including wine storage, cocktail cabinet, ice maker, wine cooler, top quality sound system, colour changing LED’s and of course, a lava lamp, recessed into the wall. For overnight guests, the seating area can be transformed into a large double bed and there is also a separate seating area / bunk at the rear.
We recently tweeted the chaps at Lava Lamp to ask them what they thought of it and they replied “Whoa. Talk about a hot ride!” That just about sums it up.
Here’s a few shots of the interior:
The seating area features a table on a remote-controlled telescopic leg, to the right is the wine cooler and the cocktail cabinet (closed)
Here’s another view of the seating area, with the cocktail cabinet open – beneath it a serving surface can be pulled out. Set into the ceiling are some remote controlled, twinkling, colour changing LED lights which look like a starry sky.

Here’s the toilet and wash basin, continuing the orange and purple theme. The laminate in here is from a design called Kromablobs by Karim Rashid
Another shot of the bathroom with additional seating to the rear of the Airstream
The table in the seating area has a Sex Pistols God Save the Queen Design, in honour of Her Majesty’s Jubilee.
Next time, we’ll show some more detailed shots of the interior…
