3D house, Beckum
Lightweight lime plaster from akurit ensures an excellent finish inside this 3D house in Beckum.
The award was to be expected, the interest of a global audience likewise. It’s no surprise that this new 3D house in Beckum in north-west Germany received the renowned German Innovation Award recently and that the building appeared in all the news bulletins. The detached house designed by Mense-Korte Ingenieure + Architekten is the first residential building in Germany to be built using the new 3D printing technology. House3Druck UG (Beckum) and Peri GmbH (Weissenhorn) built the house using the 3D concrete printing method with a BOD2 gantry printer. But that is not the only clever and innovative aspect of this project: The clients led by architect Waldemar Korte appointed the best contractors and project partners. Contractor Alexander Reining, based in Ahlen in Westphalia and an established specialist for all plastering and rendering works, was chosen to carry out the internal plastering.
It is thanks to Reining’s expertise that the clever lightweight lime KIP-it. fein plaster from akurit was applied to the internal walls of the two-storey house to meet the architect’s specification. “In the bathrooms in particular it was important to use a lime plaster that allows diffusion and thus helps to regulate the humidity,” says Waldemar Korte. With such a requirement, only one product was worth considering according to Alexander Reining: KIP-it. fein from akurit, the premium brand for render, plaster and insulation systems from Osnabrück-based Sievert SE. “I have had good experience with the range of lime plasters from akurit, and again on this project, KIP-it. fulfilled all demands,” says Alexander Reining.
