- House Cliv – Kleit, Belgium
The House Cliv is located at Kleit, Belgium. It is a single family residence completely build out of concrete. The architects designed the house to leave the ceilings and walls with a natural exposed concrete aspect and gave part of the floors a red stained concrete look in the kitchen, with red and wood design elements all around the house to contrast with the cold elegance of concrete.
- 3D Printed Concrete Houses, Shanghai
This is one of the most amazing innovations in architecture and concrete construction ever. A gigantic 3D printer was used to create as much as 10 full-full sized houses in just a single day! The houses are built with a mix of waste materials and concrete and poured into layers to make the entire structure. These 3D printed structures are only kept as models by Win Sun, the firm that created these models as they still need improvements to pass the China’s building regulations. But just the idea of the possibility of having a concrete 3D printed house sounds amazing!
- Tubohotel – Tepoztlan, México
The Tubhotel is located at a small and pintoresque town in Morelos, Mexico. The attraction of this hotel relies in that the rooms are all recycled concrete tubes all piled up like an ancient mexican pyramid. This is a hotel for those who want to enjoy a good night sleep in a comfortable queen bed with wide tubular windows facing the garden. In definitive a great eco friendly concrete project.
