The Netherlands produces affordable 3D printed houses in 120 hours flat

The Netherlands needs thousands of new homes to accommodate its growing population and it might not build them all – some may end up being printed.

Key points:

  • The home was printed in sections at a factory and assembled onsite, where its roof was added
  • The home complies with local contrustuciton laws and took 120 hours to print
  • Five houses are due to be built using the technology

As part of a program exploring how the country can create the homes it needs, Elize Lutz and Harrie Dekkers have moved into a new 94-square-meter, two-bedroom home that resembles a boulder with windows.

The curving lines of its grey concrete walls look and feel natural, but they are actually at the cutting edge of housing construction technology in the Netherlands and around the world.

They were 3D printed at a nearby factory.
