Students build 3D printed mobile mini-house
Professor and architect Peter Ebner and his workshop students have developed a 3D printed mobile mini-house. This house measures about 50ft2 and was built for young citizens who lives alone and spends not so much time at home.
Working with 3M futureLAB and voxeljet, this 2.2×2.2 meter micro-apartment was printed with a sand-based material and a specially made glue. It offers essential components such as a bedroom, a kitchen, and a bathroom, additionally, it also features an integrated multimedia system with a rear projection screen that takes the majority of the main wall.
The "dome" shape of the house allowed for easy integration of most of the furniture. Under the floor there are also two compartments for storing folding chairs. The bedroom is accessed via a ladder where an Oculus window provides light and fresh air. Ceiling lamps and further LEDs provide also additional lighting in the night.In order to save space, a movable kitchen counter-top with a sink covers the bathtub.
