3D printing technology has the power to revolutionize the manufacturing process for virtually every industry, which is evident with this 3D-printed building for the De Slaapfabriek Hotel.
Planned to be constructed in 2017, the De Slaapfabriek Hotel conference building will feature 12 rooms and will be used for clients to meet with would-be customers or business partners.
The environmentally-friendly building is set to be erected in Teuge, The Netherlands and be built at a cost of around $420,000. The 3D-printed building will use drastically less materials in the manufacturing and building process, and help decrease construction waste by 70%. Naturally, the materials used to create the building will be made from recycled materials.
The De Slaapfabriek Hotel conference building features a sculpted, swooping aesthetic and is purported to be Europe's first zero-footprint building.
