airhall


Explanation:
Airhouse may be possible. The difficulty is finding web references are from the UK/US and which are not!

This word is an old problem. When I first met it (in insurance texts) I used something like "inflated plastic structure", but have recently gone over to airhall. It is not in common use in the UK as far as I known, but I don't know what else to call it.
