- California will be home to the world's first 3D-printed neighborhood
- It will host 15 homes that feature a backyard with a pool and deck
- There will be larger units with three bedrooms and two baths
- Smaller units will also be available with two bedrooms and one bath
- The $15 million project is set to be completed by spring 2022
The world's first 3D-printed neighborhood is set for California that will feature 15 eco-friendly homes starting at $595,000.
The $15 million project is planned for Rancho Mirage in Coachella Valley and is a collaboration of the real estate group Palari and Mighty Buildings, which expect to complete the neighborhood next year.
Mighty Buildings will use its robotics and automation to construct homes, which the firm says can be completed with 95 percent less labor hours and 10 times less waste.
Residents of the futuristic housing can move into a single-story home with three bedrooms and two baths or a smaller unit with two bedrooms and one bath.
Construction is planned to cover a five-acre parcel of land, which is known for its history of presidential vacations and summits.
Alexey Dubov, co-founder and COO of Mighty Buildings, said: 'This will be the first on-the-ground actualization of our vision for the future of housing - able to be deployed rapidly, affordably, sustainably, and able to augment surrounding communities with a positive dynamic.'
Each home will feature textured exterior stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, along with a mid-century modern architecture.
The primary residence of 1,450 square feet (sf), comprising three bedrooms, two baths and a secondary residence of 700 sf comprising two bedrooms and one bath.
Both units will include a large backyard with a swimming pool and deck, along with 'views of the surrounding mountains with plenty of space for lounging and desert star-gazing.'
Might Buildings, based in Oakland, California, says it can manufacture a 350 square-foot studio unit in less than 24 hours, which suggests larger units will be completed in less than five days and the smaller homes in less than two days.
Homes will integrate DARWIN by Delos, a state-of-the-art wellness intelligence solution to help enhance human health and well-being by improving indoor air quality and implementing localized water filtration and circadian lighting.
All energy needs will be supplied by solar, with optional Tesla Powerwall batteries and EV chargers for a fully integrated electric car-home experience.
Other upgrade options include backyard amenities such as pergola decking, cabanas, hot tubs, firepits and outdoor showers.
Basil Starr, Founder and CEO of Palari, said: 'We are thrilled to launch this first development of 3D printed sustainable homes and partner with Mighty buildings to realize our common vision of transforming the way we build homes of the future.
'3D printing allows us to build faster, stronger and more efficiently, making it integral to our platform of streamlining home-building process centered on sustainability of construction, materials, and operations.'
