sustainable green 3d printed boulder house  netherlands | Breaking News

The first concrete printed house that will also be decorated and inhabited, will be in the Bosrijk district in Meerhoven (Netherlands) this year. This project Milestone is a collaboration between construction companies, the municipality of Eindhoven and TUe' s 3D Concrete Printing. In total there will be five rental homes in the landscape park; first a bungalow and later a three-storey house.
Project Milestone aims to actually apply the 3D concrete printing technique in practice. In the Groenplaats Bosrijk in Eindhoven, a landscape park in Meerhoven where homes are guests in the green, five dwellings of printed concrete will be installed in the coming years.

World first

Concrete printing in 3D is an innovation that has the potential to drastically change the future of (residential) construction in terms of speed, affordability, sustainability, freedom of form and choice. The TU / e is one of the world leaders in this field with its 3D Concrete Printing Center - led by Professor Theo Salet. The five Eindhoven homes will actually be put into use, and that is a world first. This means, among other things, that the houses must comply with the applicable building regulations and the requirements that residents of the present place on matters such as layout, comfort, affordability and quality. The houses are placed as sculptures in a sculpture garden.

Real-time innovation

The detached houses of Project Milestone are realized one after the other, which means that research into technology remains in development. This means that every new home can benefit from advancing insights and knowledge and can be adapted directly to the wishes of the residents. For example, the first house will become a single storey house that will be printed off-site. The ambition is to realize the fifth home, consisting of three layers, on location. For the collaborating partners, however, Milestone is emphatically not an experiment. They see development as a pioneering innovation that can cause a stir in the (home) construction sector.

Boulders

The design by Van Houben / Van Mierlo architects is inspired by boulders in a green landscape. The space around the houses is in fact the garden of the inhabitants of Bosrijk. With the 3D printer, can be simple forms realized that would be very labor-intensive on the traditional construction method. Shapes that can be created quickly using the 3D printer. As a result, there are more opportunities to deliver customization to the residents. This applies in particular to the outside of the house. The functionality and quality of the inside is well monitored. The 'antique cupboard' can soon be placed against a straight wall.
