The recently finished DFAB HOUSE sets a precedent for the future of architecture and design as a first-of-its-kind house that was digitally planned and also built digitally with the help of robots and 3D printers. The innovative three-storey structure was created by ETH Zurich researchers with the assistance of over 30 industrial partners.

While the exterior of the building embraces the use of angular lines, the interior of the house features an intricate concrete ceiling and other details that could only have been created with the aid of technology. Additionally, the house boasts smart features, such as the ability to open the blinds in response to a spoken command.

With the modular DFAB HOUSE, researchers are now able to test various construction and energy technologies under real-life conditions.
