Fibonacci House 3D, printed by Twente Additive Manufacturing (TAM), is now the world’s first fully 3D-printed tiny house made of concrete to be listed on the popular house-sharing network Airbnb. Users of the platform have the opportunity to spend a few nights in one of the world’s first fully 3D-printed structures in beautiful rural Canada.
This unique architectural house was designed based on the famous Fibonacci sequence. The listing on the platform is intended as a fundraiser to support World Housing (.org) in continuing its important mission to resolve the housing crisis.
From its location in tranquil Procter, 25 miles from Nelson, British Columbia, overnight guests can enjoy grandiose views of the Purcell Mountains, hike, mountain bike, or take a stroll to the community beach for a swim in pristine Kootenay Lake.
The interior includes space for 4 people on the mezzanine (you have to climb a ladder to get to bed). There is a net that prevents accidental falls, but people still need to be aware of the edge. In July, the house costs $ 164 a night, not a huge investment to get a few days out in nature and be part of history.
The spiral shape of the Fibonacci house corresponds to the Fibonacci sequence. This seemingly small structure has 2 loft rooms for 4 people. The structure is fully 3D printed, with local contractors completing details such as the ceiling, windows and utilities (WiFi is included), as well as integrated plumbing and electrical systems.
The hosts have close ties with the Harrop-Procter and Procter Point community and recommend adhering to the speed limit when approaching the house.
