A Dutch couple have moved into the world’s first 3D printed house.

Elize Lutz, 70, and Harrie Dekkers, 67, are retired shopkeepers from Amsterdam.

They received their digital key – an app allowing them to open the front door of their two-bedroom house at the press of a button – on Thursday.

“It is beautiful,” said Lutz. “It has the feel of a bunker – it feels safe,” added Dekkers.

The building has beeen designed and constructed by a company called Saint-Gobain Weber Beamix.

The house is 94sq meters of living space and the entire wall structure has been made using a 3D printer nozzle.

Other 3D houses have been built. However, this is also the first one which is 100% permitted by the local authorities and which is habited by people who actually pay for living in this house.
