Danish student housing to be built with 3D printer

Denmark: 3DCP Group and design firm SAGA Space Architects have revealed plans to build a non-profit student housing community using a 3D printer.

The project site is located near VIA University College’s campus in Holstebro, northern Denmark. The partners say the space — formerly an industrial meatpacking site — will feature 36 homes and will be Europe’s biggest 3D-printing project.

When complete, the Skovsporet community will have six buildings each with six apartments ranging from 420 to 540 square feet. All will include a kitchen, laundry, bedroom, bathroom, and living room.

Other features of the scheme will include planting, parking for bicycles and electric vehicles, walking trails and social spaces.

The project’s developer, housing non-profit NordvestBo, will select future tenants from a pool of applications “assuming there will be a ‘first come, first served’ aspect,” according to Sebastian Aristotelis, co-founder of SAGA Space Architects.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of 2024.
