To further its goal of creating homes that can be purchased for the price of a vehicle, Japanese housing startup Serendix has announced the completion of its 3D printed home ‘ serendix50’ model. The Serendix10, a 3D-printed house completed in less than 24 hours, brought Serendix to prominence in March 2022. The six versions of the house sold out by October, so the firm started working on serendix50, also known as the “barnacle model.”

In 2021, Serendix 3D printed Masayuki Sono’s winning Sphere design for the NASA 2015 3D housing challenge at the Hyakunen Jutaku facility in Japan. To print and assemble Sphere, which is less than 10m2 in area, cost less than 3 million yen (approximately $25,500), and took less than 24 hours.

Cost of the 3D Printed Home

Back when technology was known as “rapid prototyping,” the primary goal of 3D printed home was cost reduction. This was another promise of 3D-printed homes that has yet to be realized, at least in the United States. The cost of one of those 3D-printed homes in Texas is $450,000.

Alternatively, Serendix, a Japanese housing firm, has just completed the construction of the world’s first 3D printed home for the equivalent of $37,824. It’s intended for retirees and childless couples by providing “a house that can be bought for the price of a car,” as the firm puts it. These homes are only 50 square meters (538 square feet), which is obviously little for the Japanese market. To achieve our goal of eliminating the need for mortgage payments altogether, we are collaborating with more than 205 open consortium firms to find affordable solutions in the areas of technology, infrastructure, and pricing.

“Until now, the 3D printed home was haute couture (depending on the craftsman), and it was natural that the cost was high at tens of millions of yen,” Serendix remarked. “Forty years ago, as a result of improvements in the production process made possible by robots, the price of products in the automobile sector began to decrease. We see the 3D-printed home as the first step toward the full automation of the building trade.

Design of the 3D Printed Home

Demand from older married couples looking for a house to spend their retirement years in was the primary factor that led to the development of the Serendix50 design. The Digital Manufacturing Creation Center, KAP, Tateo Densetsu, Hyakunen Jutaku, and Nabeju worked together to establish a plan resulting in a 538-square-foot scheme completed in 44 hours and 30 minutes.

The concept is one of numerous examples of projects that have been made using 3D printing that are shown in our publication. Both a timber-domed pavilion recently installed at the University of Freiburg and an educational facility in Lviv, Ukraine, both make extensive use of the technology. While this was going on, ICON, Lennar, and BIG unveiled the first ever finished 3D printed home in Wolf Ranch in Texas. Meanwhile, Studio RAP presented a 3D printed passage in Delft that reinterprets traditional ceramic crafts. Both of these events took place last month.

Discover the dynamic realm of Japanese online casinos and explore innovative ways gaming enthusiasts engage with technology at the site. Moreover, as Japan continues to redefine its technological landscape, the fusion of innovative design and digital entertainment is reshaping leisure experiences. Beyond the immersive gaming world, this evolution mirrors the broader societal shift towards embracing advanced technologies. It underscores Japan’s commitment to progress not only in construction but also in offering futuristic and engaging entertainment options. As these trends converge, the synergy between automated housing and cutting-edge online casinos creates a narrative of a technologically enriched lifestyle, where seamless integration of automation and leisure becomes a hallmark of modern living.

About Serendix: The goal of Serendix is to eliminate all 30-year mortgages. The home is the greatest obstacle to independence. We hope that the Sphere we create will give the people of Japan more independence. A future where individuals may freely alter their residences in accordance with their age, family composition, and employment is within our reach, and all it takes is three million yen to purchase a house with good functionality and design.
