First Officially Inhabited Printed Home in Europe
3D-printed homes aren’t new, but in the Netherlands an exemplar has been released for official habitation. This 94 m2 ground-level space is a co-production of the TU-Eindhoven and the Vesteda housing corporation. Four more printed homes are to follow. If all works properly (it didn’t the first time, which was to be expected), the job could have been done within 120 hours, as printing robots don’t need rest. Rent commercial market: ca. €1600/month.
The main environmental upshot is that less cement will be required per m2 living space.
