Grand Designs for Rigidal S-Type


Rigidal S-Type profiled cladding has featured heavily on a recent episode of Channel 4's Grand Designs.

Strathaven Airfield is the oldest continually used airstrip in Scotland. It is now a busy and active centre for micro-lighting and the owner commissioned local architects Richard Murphy to design a house for himself and his partner to be situated parallel to the runway. To allow for maximum supervision and minimum invasion of privacy, the main rooms of the house are on the first floor with only a garage and extra bedrooms on the ground floor. The structure is a simple cantilevered steel frame and all the roof and wall cladding is Rigidal S-Type aluminium in a metallic silver finish - a material which resonates with local farm cladding and indeed the cladding of the adjacent hangars.

The big difference, however, is that the new house makes a beautiful design statement and is a stunning example of what can be achieved with this most humble of profiles.  All the cladding on the building was installed by Curtis Moore Cladding Systems.
