3DCP group builds affordable 3d printed tiny house

 

Danish 3D printing startup 3DCP Group has recently unveiled House 1.0, the first 3D printed concrete tiny house in Europe. Located in Holstebro, Denmark, the concrete unit was built in collaboration with modular 3D construction printer company COBOD, and Saga Space Architects. The building is designed to be as affordable as possible, housing all necessary amenities in just 37 sqm. The aim of the overall endeavor is to build better, faster, greener, and to reduce the amount of strenuous work in the construction process.

made of low-cost concrete 

 

Realized as a collaborative project between Danish studios 3DCP (see more here) and Saga Space Architects (see more here), the house is composed of triangular volumes arranged circularly and connected by an open middle core. The small house features a bathroom, an open-plan kitchen, a living room, and a bedroom. In order to save space, the bedroom was allocated on a mezzanine level above the bathroom. To achieve this, the roof has been elevated.

 

The entire building, including its roofs and foundations, is made of low-cost real concrete using a large construction 3D printer by COBOD (see more here). Meanwhile, its interior is characterized by warm wood, responding to Nordic building traditions.

the next quantum leap in the construction industry

 

According to 3DCP, 3D printing of buildings is the next quantum leap in the construction industry. ‘You may already know the traditional plastic 3D printers that you can have at home in your hobby room. The principle is the same, our printer is just much, much bigger.’ the Danish company explains. ‘The way we use the printer to lay the concrete, layer by layer, minimizes both waste and the general material consumption, while at the same time allowing a fusion of many processes and workflows, all of which contribute to the construction progressing quickly and efficiently.’ 

 

Thanks to years of experimentation, it is now easier to use 3D printing to build soft, organic shapes closer to the ideal as nature would have it, which creates a more stimulating and exciting living space. ‘Housing in the future will not consist of thousands of individual parts, but rather of a cohesive mass completely adapted to the needs of the residents. We can now offer this at a price that is far below what it would cost using conventional construction methods.’ 3DCP mentions.
