the world’s first 3D-printed neighborhood will be a $15 million sustainable development centered around the integration of technology and sustainability. from the 3D-printing production process which eliminates 99% of construction waste, to the efficiency of operations with solar energy and weather-resistant materials, to the efficiency of the homes themselves, the project aims to minimize its environmental impact and offer smart and healthy homes to sustainability-minded buyers.
the 3D-printed homes will be constructed in mid-century modern architecture style, will span over 1,450 square feet and will comprise 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. a secondary residence of 700 square feet will house 2 bedrooms and one bath. featuring textured exterior stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, the properties will complement their natural surroundings, sited on large 10,000 square feet lots complete with a backyard and a swimming pool with deck and views of the surrounding mountains with plenty of space for lounging and desert star-gazing.
‘we could not be more excited for this groundbreaking collaboration with palari, and to be a part of the creation of the world’s first 3D-printed zero net energy community,’ said alexey dubov, co-founder and COO of mighty buildings. ‘this will be the first on-the-ground actualization of our vision for the future of housing – able to be deployed rapidly, affordably, sustainably, and able to augment surrounding communities with a positive dynamic.’
all homes will integrate DARWIN by delos, a state-of-the-art wellness intelligence solution to help enhance human health and well-being by improving indoor air quality and implementing localized water filtration and circadian lighting. all energy needs will be supplied by solar, with optional tesla powerwall batteries and EV chargers for a fully integrated electric car-home experience. other upgrade options include backyard amenities such as pergola decking, cabanas, hot tubs, firepits and outdoor showers.
