World’s First 3D Printed Neighborhood Is Being Built In California
A home development company from California, Palari Group, and a construction tech company known as Mighty Buildings have teamed up to construct the world’s first 3D printed neighborhood. It will be constructed with robotic automation. The community will be based in Rancho Mirage, which is in Coachella Valley California, and will bear 15 homes on a 5-acre space of land. The homes built on this space would have solar panels installed. It would also be built with weather-resistant materials and will have a minimum environmental impact.
“We could not be more excited for this groundbreaking collaboration with Palari, and to be a part of the creation of the world’s first 3D-printed zero net energy community,” said Alexey Dubov, co-founder and COO of Mighty Buildings. “This will be the first on-the-ground actualization of our vision for the future of housing — able to be deployed rapidly, affordably, sustainably, and able to augment surrounding communities with a positive dynamic.”
A Deeper Look Into The 3D Printed Home
The California project is valued to be at around $15 million and will use a 3D-printed panel system which is also developed by Mighty Buildings. This system would assist in eliminating 95% of the wastes related to construction.

For the improvement of the quality of air, the designers have integrated DARWIN by Delos into the houses. This is an AI unit that purifies the internal air from pollutants, pathogens, allergens, and odors.
You can also observe additional wellness through the circadian lightings and localized filtration of water. In terms of energy, the panels absorb enough light to supply the home with electricity. You also have the option to add EV chargers or Tesla Powerwall batteries.

These individual houses have stone walls on the outer side, which are textured, highlighting the modern architecture in the midcentury. Large windows from the ceiling to the floor and 1,450 sq feet living space are also an additional aesthetic. The homes have 3 bedrooms each and have 2 bathrooms alongside a guesthouse. The guesthouse has an additional one bathroom and 2 bedrooms.
