Emaar recently unveiled the first 3D-printed villa in Dubai, UAE. The city aims to have 25% of all construction projects 3D printed by 2030 as part of its 3D Printing Strategy.
The villa, designed by U+A Architects, spanning over 202 square meters, features several interesting design elements, such as curved walls and large windows. Unlike previous 3D-printed houses, this villa also includes integration of Xiaomi’s Mobile X AIOT products, including smart vacuums, air purifiers, cameras, and other smart home technologies. This innovation is poised to redefine the landscape of smart living in the UAE.
Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder and General Manager at COBOD, said: “Due to the beauty of this project and the many fine details, we are excited to see that the building has finally been revealed. We have waited since 2019 for this to happen and are extremely proud of this project, made by one of the very first BOD2 printers we produced. This project is not just about creating a house; it’s about shaping the future of construction. Our collaboration with Emaar demonstrates how advanced technology can redefine residential living, offering smarter, faster, and more environmentally friendly building solutions.”
In addition, Dubai has plans to build the world’s first fully operational 2,000-square-meter 3D-printed mosque in Bur Dubai. It will be able to accommodate up to 600 worshippers and is expected to be completed by early 2025. In addition, as part of the 3D-printing strategy of Dubai, the Dubai Municipality has record for constructing the largest 3D-printed structure in region which stands tall at 9.5 meters and has an area of 640 square meters.
