The 3D-printed Urban Cabin only has room for a twin bed inside; but with an attached porch and nearby bathtub, it’s definitely got indoor-outdoor flow.

A tiny canalside shelter in Amsterdam is reportedly the world’s first 3D-printed microhouse – and it’s available for overnight bookings.

The ‘3D Print Urban Cabin’ by DUS Architects is situated within a former industrial area of Amsterdam, and although there’s only enough room for a twin-sized bed inside, you can always relax with a glass of wine on the attached mini-porch or have a soak in the 3D-printed bath placed in the pocket park beside the structure.

Positioned in a pocket park alongside one of Amsterdam’s many canals, the Urban Cabin is the latest 3D-printed project from DUS Architects.

The Urban Cabin only has room for a twin bed inside; but with an attached porch and nearby bathtub, it’s definitely got indoor-outdoor flow.

The 3D-printed bathtub is made from the same bio-sustainable, recyclable material as the house.

The Urban Cabin house fits the ‘tiny house’ trend in which small dwelling designs solve large housing issues.

The architects say: “The design plays with the relations between indoor and outdoor spaces creating luxury within a minimum footprint… it showcases different types of façade ornament, form-optimization techniques and smart solutions for insulation and material consumption.”

According to the design team, the Urban Cabin is made of a black “bio-print” material that is able to be shredded down and reused for new designs.

The Urban Cabin is an example of the ‘tiny house’ trend in which small dwelling designs solve large housing issues, and the thinking is that  3D printing techniques can be used particularly well in these initiatives.

While perhaps the project that’s getting the most international attention, the Urban Cabin is only one example of DUS Architects’ use of bio-printing technology.

DUS Architects designed the 3D-printed facade of the European Union building in Amsterdam.

DUS Architects designed the 3D-printed facade of the European Union building in Amsterdam.

The firm has been exploring the possibilities of the technique for years, and recently designed and installed the facades of Amsterdam’s European Union building. It also is in the final stages of developing a large-scale 3D-printed canal house – a project that began back in 2013, and is due for completion later this year..
