Fly House by Espai Fly
PALMA – Fancy looking out onto the rooftops of Palma de Mallorca on your next holiday?
Spanish design firm Espai Fly tucked a modular bed and breakfast (complete with swimming pool) onto a 4.5m-wide rooftop lot.
'Fly House' was created using three stacked secondhand containers, each only 12-sq-m, and constructed as cheaply and quickly as possible. The entire house is only 74-sq-m, and includes built-in solar panels, with an exterior garden and pool.
The interior features lime green walls and a spiral staircase, and most of the furniture was custom designed. The house is also designed to be mobile - should the owners wish to pick up and leave, the Fly House is small enough to go with them.
