3D House

3D Printed Building

The 3D-printed house project in Oman stands as a testament to the importance of reducing the CO2 footprint of buildings while maintaining high standards of durability, sustainability, and aesthetics. This remarkable project was developed in collaboration with COBOD, and two designs were developed to cater to different tastes: one with an oriental style that reflects Omani culture, and one with a more modern, western design.

The research phase of the project began in 2018, and with a lot of trial and error and further developments, the building costs could be significantly lowered to 700 OMR (= 1500€) per unit, while the building efficiency was greatly improved. The original concept of social housing was modified to create a construction center that was shaped as a courtyard building.

The first building was printed in 2019, marking a significant milestone in the project's journey. The process of printing the house was an innovative and exciting experience that demonstrated the power of technology in the construction industry. The use of 3D printing technology also resulted in a more streamlined and efficient building process, reducing the time and energy required to build the house.

The project's focus on sustainability and reducing the CO2 footprint of buildings is a testament to the commitment of the team behind the project to creating a more sustainable future. The project serves as an inspiration to others in the construction industry to adopt more sustainable practices and reduce their impact on the environment.

Overall, the 3D-printed house project in Oman is a remarkable achievement that demonstrates the power of technology, innovation, and sustainability. The project is a shining example of how technology can be used to create more sustainable and efficient buildings while maintaining high standards of durability and aesthetics. This project is a true testament to the team's commitment to creating a better and more sustainable future for all.
