SAGA Studio has established a joint venture with 3DCP Group and COBOD to construct the largest affordable 3D printed concrete house in Scandinavia, which will serve as a testing platform to refine the processes for future projects.
Located in Holstebro, Denmark, the building is a prototype that will serve as a testing platform to refine the firm’s processes for future projects.

Despite being a tiny house, it is the largest 3D printed project in the area using this innovative construction method which attracted attention from around the country.
The main purpose of the project and the overall endeavor is to build better, faster, greener, and simultaneously reduce the amount of work in the construction process.
This 37 square meters house is made of low-cost concrete and consists of triangular volumes arranged circularly and connected by an open middle core.
Named House 1.0, this tiny home features a bathroom, an open-plan kitchen, a living room, and a bedroom.
In order to save space, the roof has been elevated for the bedroom to be allocated on a mezzanine level above the bathroom.
“The way we use the printer to lay the concrete, layer by layer, minimizes both waste and the general material consumption, while at the same time allowing a fusion of many processes and workflows, all of which contribute to the construction progressing quickly and efficiently,” 3DCP states.
“Housing in the future will not consist of thousands of individual parts, but rather of a cohesive mass completely adapted to the needs of the residents. We can now offer this at a price that is far below what it would cost using conventional construction methods.”
