A peek at the Fibonacci House, Canada’s first 3D printed tiny home

A peek at the Fibonacci House, Canada’s first 3D printed tiny home 

Twente Additive Manufacturing (TAM) recently launched the Fibonacci house, the first 3D printed house in Canada and also the world’s first Airbnb listed property of this nature.

The home speaks of ambition but humility as it showcases the pros being offered by 3D Concrete Printing Technology. With this, the home was able to acquire a free form design like curved walls, giving the property a more flexible frame while ensuring a sturdy structure. This allows the house to remain at a sound and climate proof stature.

TAM is a Dutch company which was founded in 2018 with its team members coming from industries like automation and wind energy. TAM has various subsidiaries in Canada, Germany, and soon to be in Dubai. With this project and more, TAM was able to acquire a quick disruptive role in the global 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) development industry. Currently, the company is also recognized as part of the top five most influential companies within its field.

The home’s design was built using the Fibonacci Sequence or “the golden ratio” which is found in a lot of variations within the natural world. Currently, the Fibonacci House is located at Kootenay Lake Village project at Procter Point, one of the fastest-growing communities in the Nelson, BC catchment basin.

All the proceeds to be earned from its Airbnb sales will be put into the creation of affordable homes which will be led by World Housing, an international non-government organization. Given this promise, the organization wishes to use this as a starting point to build more communities in Canada for affordable living spaces using 3D printing.

The house is 35 meters square and has a very large living space with a furnished kitchen portion. It can accommodate up to two adults and two children in its mezzanine areas. Its bathroom is also designed with mosaic tiles which is located at the middle of the Fibonacci curve with the shower head at its center. The yard is a continuance of this curve which is overlooking the community Central Park and vistas of the Kootenay Lake. Other materials of the home were made from sustainably harvested cedar and fir from the Harrop Procter Community Forest. Indeed, this home embodies the natural resemblance of the most sought-after places located in this Canadian province.
