Dutch-based manufacturer of 3D concrete printers lists tiny 3D printed home for vacation rental
Twente Additive Manufacturing (TAM) announced their Fibonacci House, Canada’s First 3D Printed Home is now available for rent. The house showcases the advantages that the 3D Concrete Printing Technology has to offer; free form design with curved walls that gives the house a fluid outline and robust structure.
It’s also said to be completely sound and climate proof, easy to maintain and clean.
The Fibonacci House was printed using a concrete printer designed and sold by Twente Additive Manufacturing, a construction-technology company. The Dutch start-up was founded in 2018 by its core technical team coming from the automation and wind energy industry. With subsidiaries in Canada, Germany and soon Dubai, Twente has assumed a leading role in the global 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) development.
The design of the house was created using the Fibonacci Sequence, a well-known pattern that is often referred to as “the golden ratio” which can be found in nature in numerous variations. The site of the printed house is in the Kootenay Lake Village project at Procter Point, one of the fastest-growing communities in the Nelson, BC catchment basin.
At 35 m2, the Tiny 3D printed home has a spacious living area with a furnished kitchen section, and it can sleep up to two adults and two children on its two mezzanine areas. The bathroom is tiled with mosaic right to the very middle of the Fibonacci curve with the shower head at its center. Its yard is a continuation of the curve which overlooks the community Central Park and vistas of Kootenay Lake. All the non-cement elements of the home were made from the sustainably harvested cedar and fir from KLV’s next-door neighbours the Harrop Procter Community Forest.
