Eco-Friendly 3D HOUSE is the first of its kind in the Czech RepublicEco-Friendly 3D
Eco-Friendly 3D House It is said lasting up to 100 years and to be sustainability focused.
Now, a team in the Czech Republic has designed and developed a 3D printed house that not only reduces carbon emissions by 20% but is also ready in just 48 hours. It’s a cozy size, it looks great and it floats: what more could you need?
You may be surprised to hear that the construction industry gives off 39% of the world’s carbon emissions, while the aviation industry “only” contributes 2%. If building materials and strategies aren’t changed rapidly, these will continue to have a significant impact on our planet and climate change.
With this in mind, the team of two who started the Prvok project decided to design and develop a 3D printed 43 square meter home that floats. The main team consists of Michal Trpak, a sculptor, and Stavebni Sporitelna Ceske Sporitelny, who is a member of the Erste building society.
3D printed house: the interior
Ready in 48 hours makes the house seven times faster to build than through traditional methods, and it lowers constructions cost by half. That’s right, 50% less! Not only that, but the 3D printing method reduces carbon emissions by 20%.
The team will use a robotic arm called Scoolpt, which can print as quickly as 15 cm per second.
The comfy house consists of a bedroom, living room, bathroom, and kitchen. It’s designed so that whoever is living in it can do so all year round, and it will be anchored on a floating pontoon.
