Vic Johnson has been invited to present at the Defense Estates Sustainability conference to be held at RAF Cosford on 17th October. The conference, run by Carillion, aims to encourage best practice in the delivery of sustainable solutions for maintaining the MOD’s estate. Leading experts in the area of eco-architecture and sustainability will be sharing best practice and presenting ideas for the future to the top-brass at the Ministry of Defense.
Keeping with the military theme, Johnson Design have also recently obtained planning permission for a military project of a different kind. A serving officer, who has recently returned from Iraq, is building his own library in his garden in Shropshire. The building will be partially sunk into the ground and will house over 5,000 books on two floors. The unique design blends into the hillside whilst also providing the best use of space and light for access and enjoyment of the books.
