The Aerodrome Club combines the offices and classrooms of a flying school alongside reception area, café and members’ lounge. Inspired by the simplicity of early aviation, it presents itself as a sleek, low-lying sculpture with single doorway. However, on entering, visitors encounter a dramatic, panoramic view of the airfield, uninterrupted by a simple, open-plan interior of concrete, glass and plywood.
Externally, the louvred plane of the roof oversails the building’s footprint, providing sheltered terraces. Two identical flights of stairs at each end lead up to a roof deck, which doubles as viewing platform.
