Printing 3D designs is not a first, yet Dutch studio DUS Architects is planning on developing the first 3D-printed house which is meant to become a full-size canal house in Amsterdam, alongside the Buiksloter-canal. The process will be made possible by employing a special printer called the KamerMaker (the following two photos of the post). “This year we want to print the entire facade and the first room bit by bit. Then in the following months and years we will print other rooms.”-architect Hedwig Heinsman explained.

According to the project developers, the first floors and facades of the house will be printed from polypropylene, but the architects hope to eventually use bioplastics and plastic recycled on-site. The KamerMaker ( Dutch for “room maker”), is 3.5 metres high and constantly sits inside a shipping container. Each building part will be printed and tested at a scale of 1:20 before being printed at a 1:1 scale with the KamerMaker. The resulting 3D printed Canal House will serve as a hub for further 3D architecture research- and more surprising projects!

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
