Building an inexpensive but strong and functional home for people without living space was a global challenge, but the answer could lie in a new technology: 3D printing. Today we’re taking a look at the first 3D printed house built by ICON in less than 24 hours for about $ 4,000.
This 650 square meter home has a bedroom, bathroom, living room and small office. After the main cement building has been completed, the non-printable elements such as windows and doors are added manually. Another technological facet with these 3D houses is that the construction is controlled via a tablet, which means that very few people are actually required to build the house.
This home is decorated in a simple mid-century modern style, with a neutral color scheme and the addition of graphite gray and black. The walls are white, the floor is cement and the ceilings are mostly left as they are, and only in the bedroom is the ceiling covered with plywood.
Furniture is casual, mid-century modern, with hairpin legs, plain plywood, and wooden items. You may see lots of colorful pillows and rugs with folk prints to add a popular boho aesthetic to the home. There are some other colorful details such as artwork that make this home bold and bright.
