The house named Prvok (Protozoon) is partially self-sufficient and suitable for the country, city or water. Compared to conventional passive houses, printed houses can save up to 50% of all costs and are built seven times faster. Compared to brick buildings, 3D printing also generates up to 20% fewer CO2 emissions.

The first printed house with a floor area of 43 square meters will be built in the Czech Republic this June. The structural works will take two days and the completion two months. Prvok od Burinky (Protozoon) will have three rooms – a bathroom with toilet, living room with a kitchen and a bedroom. The building will be anchored on a pontoon and it is year- round livable house.
The house offers eco technologies such as recuperation, recirculation shower, remote control, green roof, as well as reservoirs for drinking, utility and sewage water.

The house is designed to last at least a hundred years in any environment. “In the future, the owners can crush the building once it has run its useful life, and print it again with the same material directly on the location,” adds Michal Trpak.
