Urban Cabin by DUS Architects
Urban Cabin is a minimal 3D printed home located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, designed by DUS Architects. The 3D printed Urban Cabin transforms a former industrial area in Amsterdam from a vast empty space into an urban retreat, complete with pocket park and outdoor bathtub. The building is a research into compact and sustainable dwelling solutions in urban environments. It is entirely 3D printed with bio-plastic and can be fully recycled and reprinted in the following years. The design plays with the relations between indoor and outdoor spaces creating luxury within a minimum footprint. Entirely 3D printed with black colored bio-based material, it showcases different types of faade ornament, form-optimization techniques and smart solutions for insulation and material consumption. The floor and stepped porch are combined with a concrete finish creating a beautiful pattern that extends into a path in the pocket park. In the green around the cabin you can enjoy the sculptural printed bathtub, and watch the sunset surrounded by waving poplar trees.
