Future Of Housing: Trim Studios 100-Sq. Foot Home Is “Hideaway Of Dreams”

From a Dwell.com online article:

Trim Studio 100 sq foot house kitchenFor Trim Studio, the design requirements were simple and straightforward: a living area, kitchen, wood-burning stove, bathroom, bedroom, patio, log storage, and an outdoor shower. The challenge, however, came with the square footage restrictions: the home could be no larger than 100 square feet, and no taller than 16 feet high.  

Trim Studio 100 sq foot house bedroomKris and Ali visited the site and, as Rodrigo Munguia, principal of Trim Studio, tells it, “immediately fell in love with the property.” Dubbing the site and house Ohana (meaning family in Hawaiian), the couple knew they wanted a cabin that spoke to the wooded area and took advantage of the property’s magnificent views. Particularly exciting for Munguia was the fact that they also wanted to have their wedding on the property, and planned to start their lives together at Ohana as a married couple.

To take advantage of the astounding views that extend beyond the Strait of Georgia to the cityscape of downtown Vancouver, Trim Studio oriented the home so that it faces northeast. Ohana, or Galiano 100, is outfitted with large, oversized windows and floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors so that the space feels larger than its 100-square-foot footprint.

The Future Of Homes: Modular Homebuilder “Module” Offers Low Cost, Expansion Over Time

From Builderonline.com article by Jennifer Castenson:

“This solution takes housing into a new digital age of rich information about the home buyer. After Module Housing has the buyer complete a profile, the builder then has access to their current needs and future plans. And, instead of all their future plans going to big box merchants or online vendors, the sales go back to the builder, creating a new more sophisticated brand experience for the builder, not to mention elongating the revenue stream.”

Boomers Home Design: 3D Printed Housing Will Reduce Costs And Construction Time, Improve Efficiency

From 3D Printing Media Network:

3D Printed Homes CyBe Construction“More than just demonstrating its ability to create 3D printed houses, the SRTI Park project also aims to reduce costs associated with construction. CyBe’s concrete 3D printers are developed for flexibility and speed—walls can be 3D printed in a single day—and do away with many of the costs of traditional construction methods.”

CyBe Construction, a Dutch specialist in concrete 3D printing, has been selected as the technology provider for a 3D printed house project in the UAE. The house will be built as part of the Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTI Park) initiative which aims to 3D print a series of buildings in the area with the goal of transforming the city of Sharjah into an architectural hub.

The first 3D printed house of the SRTI Park project, supported by CyBe and the American University of Sharjah (AUS), is expected to be built by Q3 2019. The house will be constructed using CyBe 3D printing construction technology with the help of students, faculty and researchers from AUS, who will be trained in using the AM platform.
