PETER PAN HOUSE, SUFFOLK
Architect: Sanei Hopkins Architects
The professional skills of Sanei Hopkins Architects were in evidence during the summer holidays when a Peter Pan House was created in a back garden in Friston, Suffolk.
The structure, for Amir Sanei and Abigail Hopkins' two sons, was built using materials left over from the Wendy House recently made for their two daughters (AJ Small Projects 2005). Additional material was bought to realise the project, which was based on a 'Suffolk pig arc for flying pigs'. The structure is suspended 2m from the ground between two trees because pigs - apparently - need 'good clearance when coming in to land and can't fly very high'.
