the red kitchen work surface and the orange bathroom furniture. All four bedrooms have been designed as calm spaces which encourage sleep, and they have been kept deliberately minimal in terms of decor and furnishings. Any colour comes from the external views which are framed perfectly by the porthole windows. In the guest bedrooms, the only furniture is a bed and a bedside table. Storage comes in the form of small built-in racks for hanging clothes, and a few shelves plus a large cupboard down the hall for any overspill. This was because when most of Marta and Colin’s friends and family come to stay they only travel with hand luggage. “Our guests spend their time in the main living area, they don’t need huge bedrooms. A friend likened them to sleeping pods, which I think is very apt,” says Marta.


Indeed, the layout throughout the property works incredibly well for entertaining, as Marta explains: “Pre-Covid when we had friends staying and the weather was rubbish, we were

stuck inside, and it was fine. The communal areas flow really well, it’s easy to cook, easy to dine and then move through to the seating areas to relax and socialise.” Whilst the internal layout and its finish has obviously been carefully considered, probably the most stunning aspect of the design is the way the building sits in such a barren landscape. At the end of the airfield is Europe’s largest onshore windfarm, but the rest of the landscape is more traditional, including old aircraft hangars. The aim therefore was to find a building that tied in with, and complemented both. The solution was a simple cantilevered steel frame with roof and wall clad in mill- finished corrugated aluminium, a material which resonates with the cladding of local farms and indeed that of the adjacent hangars. Fortunately, Richard’s design resonated with both the planners and Colin and Marta, who all agreed that a modern, kit-built house would have looked rather bizarre in the middle of an airfield. “Obviously, tastes are subjective,” Marta continues, “I love coming around the bend in the road and seeing the shape of our house. I love how it changes in the light of the day and I love how from whichever side you look at it, it has a different aspect.” As expected, Marta also had strong views on the colour and eschewed the traditional hangar green. “You see them in the landscape whether they’re green or not, they’re big sheds – so why not just make them more interesting?,” she says. “When I see our house in this openness around it, it’s like a big sculpture in the middle of the landscape, it’s a piece of art. It was important to us that the house added to the landscape, it didn’t need to merge, just as long as it added something.”
