EcoDesign Finca

A German passive-energy villa in Mallorca’s “Outback” - German couple Christina and Stephan Nickel fell in love with Mallorca after a holiday there and promptly decided to buy a holiday house on the island. However, this proved more difficult than expected. First, they couldn’t find the right plot of land. Then, their search for a suitable architect ended in disillusion. Construction costs were too high and the potential building companies too unreliable. Until they came up with their breakthrough idea, the Nickels were almost ready to give up on their “dream home on Mallorca”.

A high-tech prefabricated house from Germany - They had a 400 m² passive-energy prefabricated house transported at low cost from Germany to the Balearic island, and it was built in just a few days. Now, there’s no trace of their initial difficulties in their holiday home in northern Mallorca. The striking ecoDESIGNfinca is located in an idyllic setting between Muro and Llubí. Surrounded by fields and gravel roads, the white, single-storey bungalow stands out from the landscape, looking almost futuristic. Gravel paths and decorative plants grace its 17,000 m² grounds. Visitors arrive in the puristic H-shaped house through a large inner courtyard. Inside, four corridors run off a main hall flooded with light. Floor to ceiling panorama windows guarantee light and offer views of the inner courtyard and pool area. The villa’s interior is laid out with a spacious entry hall with piano, a modern kitchen, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a master bedroom with a dressing room and en suite bathroom, and a wellness area. It also features a private wine cellar with large panoramic windows. Dining and living areas are visually separated by an elegant open fireplace. The finca’s quality interior is further enhanced by superb parquet flooring, luxurious bathrooms and an impressive poolside area. Its owners’ love of detail is revealed in the imposing decorative clay jars – a reminder of the Mallorquin way of life – in its kitchen’s state of the art equipment, and in the Alpine White electrical installation in the classic LS 990 switch design from Jung.

A home with a long future on Mallorca - Combining harmonious interior design with well-planned living spaces, the finca’s single-level design makes it easy for anyone with restricted mobility to live in, at any age. Its highly efficient building technology complies with the highest energy efficiency standards. The aluminium-glazed windows, wood-fibre insulated facade and roof reuse heat generated in the house via its underfloor heating. A special heat pump and controlled ventilation constantly circulate air through the rooms. Its indoor climate remains pleasant despite the island’s sometimes high daytime temperatures. The Jung Blind Management system provides extra shade on hot days, and lighting can be conveniently adjusted with Jung touch dimmers. With the unusual story of its creation and its outstanding technical equipment, this exported German house is now celebrated as one of Spain’s first passive-energy houses.
