Details 

Standing at 9.9m tall, the three-storey 3D-printed villa is located in Shams Al Riyadh, northwest of Riyadh.

The project was carried out by developer Dar Al Arkan using a COBOD 3D construction printer.

Low-cost local materials were used at a cost of less than £8,728 to create the 330m2 building.

The previous tallest 3D printed building was in Germany and stands at 3.7m tall.

Development 

Dar Al Arkan 3D construction printing project manager Wael Al Hagen said: “Our efforts are focused on developing the kingdom’s real estate sector by integrating the latest trends and technologies.”

“Drawn from global best practices to enhance our industry locally and deliver on the objectives of vision 2030.”

Design flexibility

“The introduction of 3D construction printing enables us to focus on greater flexibility of design, strengthen productivity and achieve higher cost efficiency”.

Following the printing of the first villa, Dar Al Arkan has moved the printer to print another villa. Wael Al Hagen continued: “We are currently building the second villa, which will typically take a month to complete, but we’ve already finished the first floor of 130 m2 in only eight days.”
