A futuro house in Somerset’s Marston Park is the center of attraction this summer. It offers accommodation and a rare opportunity to journey back in time to as far back as the 1960s. The future home is a saucer-shaped piece of architecture designed and unveiled by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen in 1968. There are just 68 saucer-shaped structures in the world today.
As part of a partnership with Somerset, artist Craig Barnes brought the famous work of architecture from South Africa. Barnes first repaired and saved it from the wreckage before transporting it to the United Kingdom from Africa.
The futuro house was envisioned initially as a remote vacation getaway. It is transportable and designed to withstand winter temperatures. It also serves as a ski lodge. Based on two adults sharing, the cost of lodging in the house ranges between £400 and £1,200 a night.
Marston Park offers you the opportunity to experience spaceship-style Scandi hygge living for any number of nights you want to book. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to spend the night in this amazing work of history, nestled in the lovely lakeside setting of Marston Park.
The futuro house has various private facilities and spaces like private toilet facilities, linens and towels, bathrobes, and a boiling hot shower. It also has studio monitor speakers, mood lighting, tea and coffee makers, and an outdoor seating space with a nearby fire pit.
A double bed in the main sleeping area and another flexible sleeping area that accommodates two people enable the house to contain four people at once. Guests do not have access to cooking facilities, but drinks and food are available on-site all through the day.
Generally, the experience is fantastic. The crews at Marston Park go above and beyond to ensure that you have everything needed to create a lasting memory.
