QOROX’s Paremoremo House in Auckland, New Zealand, is currently regarded as the biggest 3D printed house in the Southern Hemisphere and is also the region’s first fully 3D printed home

The Southern Hemisphere’s biggest 3D printed home

The challenge

The Paremoremo House, constructed by our partner QOROX, was designed to be one of the largest standalone 3D printed houses in the world. In the Southern Hemisphere, it stands as the largest 3D printed building, covering an area of 252 square meters. The Paremoremo House, named after its suburb in Auckland, would be the province’s first fully 3D printed home. To build this large-scale structure, with 63 wall panels adding up to a grand total of 360m², it was important that the off-site printing process would proceed as efficiently as possible.

Catering to their needs

The design

The project was designed by the multi-award-winning architecture firm Dorrington Atcheson Architects to complement the site’s natural contours and peaceful setting. QOROX was pleased with the design as it enabled them to fully leverage the design capabilities of their 3D printer. The flexibility of 3D concrete printing made it easy to bring the family home’s blueprint, designed to accommodate a family of four, to life. Using the technique, they were able to create geometric proportions and shapes significantly cheaper than would be possible with traditional construction.

The takeaways

QOROX, having the necessary experience with 3D concrete printing, managed to produce the walls for the Paremoremo House cost-effectively and sustainably. The exterior walls were later filled with insulation, whereas the interior walls got a solid fill. QOROX saved costs by integrating cavities in the wall elements for insulation, plumbing, and wiring. With their 80% locally sourced material, they achieved a 30% reduction in emissions compared to traditional concrete construction. The house was also built flood-proof and earthquake-proof, which was necessary in the disaster-prone region of Auckland.
