Italian architecture firm CLS Architetti teamed up with U.K.-based engineering firm Arup to devise what is set to be the world's very first 3D-printed concrete house, dubbed 3D Housing 05.

The construction procedure for this 3D-printed concrete house begins by using layers of cement mixture to forge the walls, with a robotic machine used to allow for improved dynamism in the construction process. The aesthetically focused final touches and tweaks are made by human craftspeople. The finished product is set to comprise 100 square meters of floorspace and will cost less than conventionally constructed homes of a similar size.

Ultimately, the 3D Housing 05 project is intended to test and show off the technological process behind the construction. But in doing so, the project is a business endeavor in itself as it looks to showcase cutting-edge 3D-printing technologies that could revolutionize the construction industry, with CLS Architetti and Arup at the forefront.
