Translating to “The Meeting Factory” in English, De Vergaderfabriek’s iconic and dynamic design is built to inspire team collaboration. Printed in 10 days and with reduced emissions and waste, it is efficiently and sustainably produced.

Iconic ambitions

The challenge

CyBe Construction was challenged with the task of building the first, highly complex, double-curved, 3D printed building. The construction was completed in collaboration with Revelating, The Form Foundation, and Witteveen&Bos, and was commissioned by Center4Moods. To keep the project on budget, CyBe’s role migrated from subcontractor to general contractor, a role CyBe has continued to hold in subsequent Netherlands-based projects.

Dynamic look and feel

The design

The design of De Vergaderfabriek was inspired by airplane turbine blades. The concept connects to the architects’ wishes to create an ideal space for active team co-working. Each curved wall of the building is a unique shape, contributing to the design’s dynamic feel. The blade-like walls open and close to allow varying levels of indoor-outdoor exposure. This also results in different visual impressions from every point of view.

Efficient and sustainable

The takeaways

De Vergaderfabriek is the first 3D concrete printed commercial building in Europe. Compared to traditional construction, CO2 emissions and waste were reduced by 40% and 70%, respectively. Printed with the CyBe Robotic Crawler (RC), this iconic design was printed on site in 10 days. The result is a captivating design that is sustainably produced. Such a construction could only be efficiently built using 3D printing.
