Fly house is a contemporary concept of habitat designed and built by the design studio Espai fly. A project tailored to the needs of today (budget, mobility, speed, ecology ...), which can be located easily in cities and open spaces.

Fly The house project is concerned primarily with 4 key points:

  1. Ecology & Recycling
  2. Economy
  3. Mobility
  4. Design Indoor / Outdoor

1. Ecology & Recycling

The base module is made from the worksite reuse second-hand, which contributes to the reuse of some materials difficult to recycle.

The house is ready with pre-installed solar panels to heat the water, the same rain that can be collected in gutters.

All appliances and lighting are low.

The interior is natural wood treated with varnishes friendly environment, and pavements are marine board.

On the other hand, waste away and expenses in making a traditional work (cost of water, building materials, electricity consumption, etc.).. Installation is quick and easy, so there is no dust during installation.

Noise pollution during the installation of the Fly house was minimal compared to the noise caused by any conventional construction.

2. Economy

It was essential to get to make a low-cost housing, due to the characteristics of the future owners: a young couple 26 years old.

The price of these modules, compared to a traditional construction of brick or concrete, makes a habitat house fly low cost with many opportunities for expansion and customization.

The Fly house is located in a very small site (4.5 m wide), almost residual, between the medians of a neighborhood of houses.

Site preparation consisted of a slab with piles and a load bearing wall that would hold the 3 modules that make up the house.

3. Mobility

Given that there was a possibility that the owners wanted to change his address in the future, the idea that the house fly could be easily moved and installed anywhere else was one of the requirements to be considered and another reason by which the modules are perfectly suited to the project.

Thanks to its design and standardized measures, the house fly can be carried comfortably in a truck-mounted cranes and installed almost anywhere.
The unplug and ... to fly!

4. Design

The design goal, despite having the handicap of small spaces (12 m2 approx. per module), was to provide above all a sense of comfort and well adapted to the needs of the twenty-first century, and many times under the motto of "less is more. "
The design became one of the key points and where the team worked more closely Espai fly to compose the different modules in the field and design the various indoor and outdoor spaces that make up the house fly.

Mark in the project materials such as wood ash, stainless steel and glass that sits on all sides, both doors and enclosures as large square windows, thanks to these crystals you get natural light during most of the day also help give a feeling of spaciousness and light to a space that seems almost to float, since the modules are suspended at 30 cm. soil.

The contrast of linear forms which occur both in the general as opposed to furniture to other newsletters such as the bathroom mirror, the spiral staircase or the round window of the bedroom.
Light colors, beige and green, directly related to the nature, form the main room area and bedroom, while the metal take over the kitchen or bathroom.

Except the kitchen, which has been adapted with Ikea furniture and a vintage stools recovered, all the rest of the furniture has been designed entirely by the team Espai fly.
This is made from very basic and simple ways, taking the uniqueness of many of them hidden inside storage spaces that will be useful, as the trunks of so-fly or sofa bed system equipped with drawers push-open (without handles) and trunks around the perimeter.

Externally we can distinguish several areas that create a set of connections between interior / exterior.
The first is a semi-covered space that gives way to the main entrance, designed for the placement of bicycle or motorcycle. In one of its sides have been planted bamboo canes.

The second area is a transit area between the module and the kitchen. What makes up a small white stone garden with a Japanese cherry tree and a wooden walkway that acts as a link.

In the back of the lot is a versatile patio gravel soil, provided with a triangular tent, a hammock and an organic garden.

Finally, in the first floor is a small terrace with wood-based service and finally the kitchen counter artificial turf was installed using this space as a solarium.

The construction of the furniture was given to the local woodworking Fusteria Fuller, and outdoor furniture (hammock and mattress) are of the Dutch brand Fatboy ®.
