Germany's first printed house is ready for occupancy. Less than ten months after the official go-ahead, the single-family house built by the PERI Group with a COBOD BOD2 concrete printer in Beckum, North Rhine-Westphalia, was officially opened by Ina Scharrenbach, Minister for Regional Identity, Communities and Local Government, Building and Gender Equality of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The State of North Rhine-Westphalia provided financial support for the project as part of its "Innovative Building" funding program. The building owner is Beckum-based Hous3Druck UG. The building was planned by the Mense-Korte architectural office, which is also based in the town.

"3D printing is a revolution for the construction industry," said Minister Scharrenbach: "We are faster, we need less material and we are more environmentally friendly. If you don't need the house anymore, you can just vacuum it up and reprint it."

The two-story house with living space of 160 square meters is located in the Beckum cement district. According to Beckum's mayor Michael Gerdhenrich, an entire quarter of printed houses is to be built here.
