Can you imagine living in a home that wasn't built using wood, cement, and steel? WATG, one of the world’s leading architectural firms, believes that this is possible.

From food to all sorts of homeware, 3D printing has been taking the world by storm. In a nutshell, it is the method of additive manufacturing or creating a physical model by continuously placing thin layers of plastic together. The team behind WATG wants to take this revolutionary technology to the next level by constructing a livable structure based on a digital design. 

The firm’s groundbreaking Urban Architecture Studio’s “Curve Appeal won first prize in The Freeform Home Design Challenge, commissioned by Branch Technology. The challenge was to design a single-family space that would bring new light to the traditional aesthetic of building homes. 

WATG designers Daniel Caven, Chris Hurst, Miguel Alvarez, and Brent Watanabe share that the house will have two main components—an interior core and an exterior skin with open living spaces that include a living area, a kitchen, a bath, and one bedroom. Branch Technology is expected to start printing the house by 2017.
