The Eco-Luxe Prefab Retreat on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca embodies over 4,300 square feet of refined, modern architecture and unconventional passive design. Created by EcoDesignFinca, this dream home sits on acre upon acre of green land in a rural setting.
It’s quite astonishing how far prefabricated homes have actually come. This particular one-story villa was constructed in Germany then brought to its current home in Spain. Having low-energy elements paired with luxurious beauty, this modern retreat features four-bedrooms and three baths. It’s unique H-shaped design lends itself to vast outdoor living areas which, frankly, rival the engaging interior spaces.
The home’s entryway via a pebbled path is remarkable. A set of bulky, weathered wooden doors feature heavy brass knockers which give the slightest inclination as to the luxury which awaits inside.
Finishes throughout are elegant, with rich woods and cut stone encompassing the main materials utilized. Abundant glass walls and doors line the courtyard’s perimeter, creating a boundariless living experience. The series of vertical strips of glass along one rear wall are stunning, creating both architectural interest and entry for natural light along a hallway. The living room, dining room and kitchen share one flowing, light-filled space, with a white, two-sided fireplace as the sole partition.
The swimming pool is majestic, beginning within the central courtyard then elegantly jutting out into the expansive fields. I’m loving the white canopies, which provide ample shade from the sun without compromising views of the endless blue skies. The pitched roofline dictates a dramatic transition to the more open stone patio space with white bed loungers. Such a peaceful space!
Colors in the contemporary furnishings are sumptuous with deep grey and creamy caramel, but most decadent are the plum and purple accents in decorative pillows, bedding and area rugs. This bold, unexpected color definitely garners attention.
The master suite is a haven with a spa bathroom replete with sauna, hot tub and walk-in shower. A custom wardrobe closet just adds to the allure here. Additional bedrooms also capture the views of the mountains and are dressed in cool whites and soothing greys.
Masterfully designed, the Eco-Luxe Prefab Mallorca Retreat is a gorgeously green, modern dream home.
