Located about 10 minutes from the center of Pallma, Fly House is conveniently situated near a number of amenities but it’s also quiet and relaxed. Owned by Balbina and Miquel Angel, the one-bedroom house is accessed via a large entry gate that leads into an ample courtyard perfect for bike storage and a small garden. The ground floor holds the living area, the bathroom and a kitchen, which opens onto the back patio with more dining space and a lovely blue-tiled pool covered with a sail awning for shade.

Espai Fly prefabricated the house using three 20 ft shipping containers and then brought them to the site. The entire project was completed in just 6 weeks, which provided considerable savings in time, money, energy and dust. The interior features a small footprint that is filled with daylight from both sides. Wood slats on the upper bedroom unit provide a rain screen and shade to help reduce heat gain. Rainwater is collected from the roof and rooftop solar panels heat domestic hot water. Energy-efficient appliances and lighting further reduce electricity use. Fly House was named because all of the containers can be removed and “fly” to the next location. If you’re planning a trip to Mallorca, you can rent this one-bedroom for your very own via AirBnB.
