Peter Aldington

Are you interested in domestic architecture? Then you will wish to note a fascinating event coming up on Saturday 3rd June when you will be able to join Peter Aldington and other members of the Turn End Trust for a rare chance to visit four built projects in Buckinghamshire designed by the practice Aldington, Craig and Collinge in the 1960s, 1970s and 1990s.

Exploring inside three, possibly four, private houses that are not usually open to visitors, Peter Aldington will explain how the houses, designed by Peter Aldington and Paul Collinge, respond to the detailed clients' briefs researched and written by John Craig.

The projects exhibit principles for which the practice is known including open planning and the linking of indoors and outdoors, village houses that are sympathetic to their locality yet make a striking contribution to the environment, and the simplicity, directness and honesty of building and materials.

Meet the owners and explore a garden designed by Peter Aldington (where participants will picnic) around one of the houses which extends the design ethos established by the house into the garden, using hedges and walls to define areas of differing function or character. Transport included, some walking required. Bring your own picnic, drink and indoor shoes!

Turn End Tour: Saturday 3rd June 2017: 10.00-17.00
£75 (Friends: £65) Booking required or email turnendtrustevents@gmail.com
