PassivDom 3D Printed House - What If You Could Live Anywhere?
PassivDom is a 3D-printed house, it's completely finished inside and out. Heating, ventilation, solar electricity and household appliances are all included. It's off-grid - live anywhere! It's a science-fiction fan's dream come true.
Due to the use of advanced materials and unique developments by our engineers, PassivDom has the highest thermal performance among residential buildings. Walls of PassivDom are as warm as brick, being 7,33m thick.
We took on a difficult task — to create windows as warm as walls. And our team managed to do that — PassivDom windows are the warmest in the world. That is why there are really big windows in the houses that let in a lot of light inside.
According to recorded data, PassivDom exceeds the requirements of energy efficiency for PassivHaus Institute and LEED. All thermal indicators exceed the requirements of the industry: so it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Even a minimum configuration of PassivDom has burglary protection system. Tempered glass, aluminum windows and doors, a strong carbon and fiberglass frame that is 6 times stronger than steel, make it an impregnable against burglars.
For your protection, every PassivDom has a built-in GSM-alarm system that system that keeps an eye on your home by video on your smartphone.
PassivDom is mobile and can be transported to any place within a few hours. House frame is 9 times stronger than steel wich allows for transporting multiple times.
Auto platform can transport PassivDom to any place within hours. The house doesn’t need a foundation, so it can be easily located on the shore of the picturesque lake, in a grove or in the mountains.
PassivDom can legally be established on any type of land and significantly less expensive than the purchasing of a building plot. The house mobility allows you lease rather than buy a plot.
I'm fascinated by the idea of a self-sufficient house, which I first read about in Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End.
I since discovered an earlier, and more detailed, literary exploration of this idea in Clifford Simak's 1952 story Ring Around the Sun:
"The houses are prefabricated units," said Crawford, "and they sell at the flat rate of five hundred dollars a room — set up. You can trade in your old home on them at a fantastic trade-in value and the credit terms are liberal — much more liberal, I might add, than any sane financing institution would ever countenance. They are heated and air conditioned by a solar plant that tops anything — you hear me, _anything_ — that we have today. There are many other features, but that gives you a rough idea....
