Last week, at a launch event involving Xiaomi's Smart living concept, Emaar finally unveiled Dubai's first 3D printed "villa" house, which was previously delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 202m2 (2,175 SF) home with integrated parking, 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms represents one of the most impressive examples of what 3D printing can do for architectural design and the housing market.

Emaar, with a net worth of nearly $40 billion, is among the most admired and valuable real estate development companies in the world. Emaar is known for its focus on innovation, design excellence, construction quality and timely delivery, as clearly evidenced by the recently unveiled building in Dubai's Arabian Ranches III area.

Emaar's commitment to innovation is reflected in the development of Dubai's first 3D printed house. This groundbreaking achievement represents Emaar's initial foray into establishing itself as an advocate of advanced building technologies. The leading real estate developer is leveraging innovative construction methods to build faster, more cost-effectively and with distinctive designs, while contributing to waste reduction and noise pollution abatement. The pioneering initiative aligns perfectly with Dubai's Smart City vision, reaffirming Emaar's commitment to redefine building standards and harmonise with the city's overall technological and sustainable goals. These goals include the implementation and utilisation of 3D printing technology, with Dubai aiming for 25% of all construction projects to be 3D printed by 2030, as part of its 3D Printing Strategy.

The 202m2 (2,175 SF) villa includes many interesting details and design solutions, such as extensive use of curved walls and large-scale windows. The villa was designed by U+A Chartered Architects.

With three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with dining area and a study room, the house also showcases how 3D printing can integrate with Xiaomi's Mobile X AIOT products, including smart vacuums, air purifiers, cameras and more, set to redefine the smart living landscape in the UAE.

Henrik Lund-Nielsen, Founder and CEO of COBOD, shared his thoughts on the project: "Because of the beauty of this project and the many fine details, we are excited to see that the building has finally been unveiled. We have been waiting since 2019 for this to happen and are extremely proud of this project, realised by one of the first BOD2 printers we produce. This project is not just about creating a house: it's about shaping the future of construction. Our collaboration with Emaar demonstrates how advanced technology can redefine residential living, offering smarter, faster and more environmentally friendly building solutions.
