The world’s first community of 3D printed Zero Net Energy homes has been announced to be constructed in Rancho Mirage, California. Palari Group, a development company dedicated to re-imagining real estate through innovative and sustainable building strategies; is collaborating with Mighty Buildings, a construction technology company that uses 3D-printing and robotic automation to create beautiful, affordable, and sustainable homes. Both companies announced that they had acquired a plot where they would be able to construct the US$15 million sustainable development. The project will be the world’s first planned community of 3D printed homes and is centered around the integration of technology and sustainability.
From the 3D-printing production process which eliminates 99% of construction waste, to the efficiency of operations with solar energy and weather-resistant materials, to the efficiency of the homes themselves, the project aims to minimize its environmental impact and offer smart and healthy homes to sustainability-minded buyers. The eco-friendly development is minutes away from The Sunnylands. Palari and Mighty Buildings share this sustainability ethos and are excited to add value to the neighborhood and the city of Rancho Mirage, a well-known wealthy area.
Featuring textured exterior stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, each of the 3D printed zero net energy homes will complement its natural surroundings with mid-century modern architecture and will consist of a primary residence of 1,450 square feet, comprising 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a secondary residence of 700 square feet comprising 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Situated on a large 10,000 square foot lot, each backyard will feature a swimming pool with a deck and views of the surrounding mountains with plenty of space for lounging and desert star-gazing.
“We could not be more excited for this groundbreaking collaboration with Palari, and to be a part of the creation of the world’s first 3D-printed zero net energy community,” said Alexey Dubov, Co-Founder and COO of Mighty Buildings. “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.”
