Smart Planet – Danish architects Frederik Agdrup and Nicholas Bjorndal of Eentileen used just a computer, a printer (computerized milling) and 820 sheets of plywood to build a 125 square meter (1,345 square foot) home in four weeks. Named Villa Asserbo, the home is the pilot project of Eentileen’s Print a House project. The designers are touting the process of mass-customizing houses and responsibly producing them on site.
It is a quasi-prefabricated home.
* The project uses no concrete
* Wood is the only wall material used, with the exception of glass windows
* The wood is PEFC certified from sustainable forests in Finland
* The CNC-machine wastes very little material
* Structural steel is minimal
* The structure touches the ground only at its screw pile foundations
