These days, almost everything can be 3D printed, but having an entire residential neighborhood roll out of a 3D printer is unprecedented. Developer Palari Group is claiming this first by building a residential neighborhood with 15 sustainable, 3D printed homes in southern California.Text: Fleur de Jong

Less construction waste

The development company has already reserved a site in the Coachella Valley for the $13 million project and plans to begin construction in September. The plan is to build 15 one-story sustainable homes, each covering an area of 1,450 square meters. 

Each home will be made using a modular system. The company Mighty Buildings prints panels of composite, which are then assembled on site. The developer claims that this method of construction ensures 99 percent less construction waste and thus minimizes the impact on the environment. Also, all the energy the house needs is supplied by the sun.

Many options

While the construction method can already be called impressive, the same is certainly true of the interior and appearance of the homes. Each plot will have a home with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a modern interior. Buyers have the choice to add a second home to the plot with an additional two bedrooms and bathroom. Of course, any furniture that cannot be 3D printed will be sourced sustainably. The backyard comes with pool and patio. Again, buyers can choose extras such as a hot tub, fire pit or outdoor shower. 

In addition to the many extras, each home will also feature an advanced intelligent system that promises to improve health and well-being in the home. For example, water will be filtered, air quality improved and lighting adjusted according to the biological clock.

Prices of the homes start at 500,000 euros and can reach 800,000 euros with the various additional options.
