There’s been talk for several years now of 3D Printed Homes so we thought we’d give it a go. However, there is one key difference – our home is somewhat more of a model, being only a 75th of the size of the actual house.
3D Printing the Kerikeri Residence
We’ve had 3D printed models of our designs in the past but this is definitely the most spectacular.
Seeing Your Home in Reality
Since the build is still work in progress our clients have actually been able to see their house in real life – at a 75th of the size of what it will finally be!
Using models to explore shadows, form and shape has been used in the Architecture industry for many many years. However, model making is time consuming and clients will not often pay Architects to spend hours putting together a cardboard model.

A Removable Roof
Due to the accuracy of 3D printers nowadays, everything within the house fits together like a glove, to the last millimetre. Also, the roof is printed separately allowing it to be positioned on top of the walls for the perfect fit.
This means that the roof can easily be removed so the interior of the house can be explored, the beds, furniture, and even people!
