You can apply to live in the world’s first 3D printed nabe
A futuristic development in a West Texas city is now accepting applications, The Post can report.
The multifaceted project, known as Sunday Homes, in the eccentric high desert community of Marfa is seeking buyers.
Marketed as “a new standard for housing solutions,” Sunday Homes is planned to be a combination hotel and homeowners association, with 30 homes sharing luxury amenities with a relocated incarnation of the local El Cosmico hotel.
All homes are 3D printed, just like the hotel – an international first.
First opened in Marfa in 2009, El Cosmico is a “camping hotel for intrepid travelers,” offering accommodations such as teepees, caravans, yurts, and a small home called the Cosmic Kasita.
It regularly hosts the annual Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love, limits the range of the wireless internet to the lobby and encourages visitors to “take the long open road” and enjoy “naps and other moments of non-action ” during their stay.
As part of the current development, El Cosmico will move from its current 21-acre plot to its new 3D-printed building on a 60+-acre site that it will share with the residences.
The larger grounds of the Bohemian Residences will feature amenities – some of which will also be 3D printed – including a hammam, infinity pool, bar, stage, communal outdoor kitchen, open-air bathhouse and on-site restaurant.
Homeowners have access to all hotel amenities.
The homes — which are being built in collaboration with Danish design firm Bjarke Ingels Group, Austin-based construction company ICON and hotelier Liz Lambert — start at $900,000 and require a $5,000 down payment.
“We are honored to be working with this team of visionaries. Sunday Homes at El Cosmico offers a rare opportunity to own unique 3D printed homes in Marfa, designed and built by a truly exceptional and dynamic team,” said Emily Waldmann of Douglas Elliman and Megan Gallagher, who are responsible for the sales and marketing of the Homes. told The Post in a joint statement. “This is an iconic project rooted in West Texas and we are excited to introduce it to the public.”
The residences will be printed on site and laid out as 1,200 to 2,200 square feet with two, three and four bedrooms, designed to blend in with the natural landscape – and feature plenty of soft shapes, curved surfaces and domes, according to pressing materials.
They are expected to be retractable sometime in the second half of 2024.
