Just outside Auckland, stands a groundbreaking structure: New Zealand’s first 3D-printed concrete house. The largest 3D-printed house in the southern hemisphere and recently featured in HOME Magazine. And it’s with help from QOROX that another significant stride has been taken towards revolutionising architecture.

Initially conceived as a concrete block pavilion, the design evolved dramatically when architect Tim Dorrington of Dorrington Atcheson Architects (DAA) discovered the potential of 3D concrete printing through Waikato-based QOROX.

The QOROX team utilising the cutting-edge 3D concrete printer to its full capabilities, has helped to create an architectural home that rivals the cost per square meter of standard group-home builds.

The 3D-printed walls create a seamless flow between spaces. The home’s design centres around a large open-plan kitchen, living, and dining area, flanked by private bedrooms, ensuring both communal and private spaces are well-balanced.

As we look to the future, 3D concrete printing stands poised to revolutionise residential building in New Zealand. This project offered invaluable learning opportunities for QOROX around 3D-printed homes. These learning are now being used on another residential project in Hamilton, what will become New Zealand’s first 3D-printed show home.

3D-printed concrete is the next evolution in building, and it’s happening right now, right here in New Zealand. With projects like this, QOROX is leading the charge into a new era of sustainable, innovative architecture.
