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
Here are a couple of snaps of the twinkling starry ceiling lights we have installed in the Airstream motorhome. The lights are set into the faux suede ceiling and arranged in constellations to match the client’s star signs.
In the ARC workshop today: we are fitting these fibre optic lights into the ceiling of this Whaletail Airstream to create a starlight effect.
The recently finished Apollo 70 Airstream Bar has been fitted with coloured mood lights and a twinkling ‘starry ceiling’ plus colour changing lights around the outside of the serving hatch. These lights create different moods for different events and also look spectacular as they reflect off of the highly polished interior and exterior of the Airstream.
In the ARC workshop – the Airstream bar project is nearly finished. Here you can see the newly installed colour changing LED lights turning the whole Airstream fuchsia, the Airstream glowing at night showing the TV and the twinkling star light LED ceiling. These blurry snaps are just a taster of what’s to come as we’ve just had a pro-photoshoot of the project with our ace Airstream photographer Jeremy Phillips and we’ll be showing you some big glossy snaps of the finished Airstream next week!
In the workshop today the Airstream bar is receiving some finishing touches. Pictured above, Darren and our client Richard discuss fitting the coffee machine. Inside the bar has been fitted with a twinkling LED starry ceiling and colour changing LEDS. It also has carbon fibre doors and some colour changing LEDS on the outside too so people can spot it at any event.
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.
A visual feast for you today as this Airstream is really starting to take shape, demonstrating the versatility of the design team here at ARC. If the customer wants minimalist, we can do minimalist – or if they want something bright and bold and inspired by iconic design, we can do that too!
This client wants to stand out from the crowd with a retro style interior which has been inspired by the colours of a lava lamp. This is the Airstream with the starry ceiling which I have mentioned in previous posts. It’s also going to have a cocktail cabinet and a periscope. At the moment Darren and the team are busy fitting the stereo and the dazzling purple and orange cabinets and drawers with retractable handles – take a look at all of these lovely pics to see how it’s coming along:
Check out these groovy retractable drawer handles – now you see it….
…now you don’t!
…and the same on the kitchen cupboards!
