On April 30th, a Dutch couple took possession of the first Dutch 3D-printed concrete house. The Eindhoven house is a single-story dwelling with 94 square meters of floor space that displays modern 3D printing technology and meets all Dutch building regulations. Project Milestone says this is the first of five 3D-printed houses planned, each more complicated than the last.
The home’s distinctive boulder-like shape is purposeful, according to the firm, and shows the form flexibility given by 3D concrete. According to Professor Theo Salet of the Eindhoven University of Technology, this little structure represents a significant milestone in the evolution of construction as a high-quality manufacturing business. “Digitalization leads to sustainable and cheap dwellings adapted to the occupant’s preferences. With the cooperation of the town, this quick invention by industry is something I am proud of,” added the professor.

Project Milestone claims that 3D-printed houses are quicker, more flexible, and more individualized. According to the business, 3D concrete printing is a sustainable building process that may help solve the housing problem.
“The home comprises 24 printed concrete parts that were created layer by layer in Eindhoven,” Project Milestone reveals. “The components were trucked to the construction site and set on a foundation. The home was subsequently finished with a roof and frames.”
The business claims that as the construction technology advances, future houses will be more complicated and contain more storeys. A two-story home will be erected on-site after printed off-site initial structures.
The home’s distinctive form mimics a large rock to fit in with the surroundings and show off the capabilities of 3D concrete.
“Construction relies on innovation. Aside from low-cost housing, the market is demanding new housing designs. The assemblage of a 3D-printed home is now possible, allowing homeowners to design their own homes. “Eindhoven’s DNA is innovation, exploration, and design. We do things together, not alone. I’m delighted that this promising idea has found a home in our community and that it does so affordably.”
