Full description

This building was constructed in 1936-37 to a 1935 design by A. Bulloch, architect to the Air Ministry's Directorate of Works and Buildings. It was the airmen's dining room and is listed together with the former airmen's insitute building, located to the immediate north (see PRN 49277). It is a distinctive building in neo-Georgian style that makes an important contribution to the airfield. For the full description and the legal address of this listed building please refer to the appropriate List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. {1}

Centurion House was the subject of historical research in 2015, when an assessment of its significance was produced, prior to the proposed conversion of part of the former kitchens to residential use. The building consists of the main u-shaped, two-storey former dining block, and the single-storey former kitchens, which infill the rear courtyard space. The building is constructed of a medium brown brick laid in Flemish bond, and features hipped roofs of interlocking tiles with a parapet front. {2}
