The Ramdanis have become the first family in the world to move into a 3D-printed house. The four-bedroom property is a prototype for bigger projects aiming to make housebuilding quicker and cheaper.
This new prototype of a 3D printed home have digital controls for the convenience of disabled individuals and the curved-wall designs that substantially alleviate the effects of humidity on the house.
The 95m (1022ft) square house – built for a family of five with four bedrooms and a big central space in Nantes – is a collaboration between the city council, a housing association and University of Nantes.
The construction of the entire house cost around £176,000. This means that the cost of construction done by 3D printing is 20% cheaper than using conventional construction techniques.
