This house was been designed to the  specific  brief provided by the clients who enjoy microlight flying and own the airfield on which the house sits. The cheerfully idiosyncratic built form and choice of external cladding material sit comfortably with the neighbouring semi-industrial hangar buildings. The layout is well organised, creative and highly customised to reflect both the specific brief and the personalities of the clients. This is a light, airy and joyful building which, as well as a family home, provides highly effective and attractive separate workspaces for both its owners.
