The Cloud House was designed as a second residence for a Northern Californian couple. The billowing concrete walls, which under normal circumstances would cost upwards of $1M to cast, can be printed for under $5K thanks to Total Kustom's concrete 3D-printing technology. Their form was computationally derived from a photo of clouds.
The residence is designed to be 3D-printed atop a traditionally poured concrete floor slab. Its interior is largely open-plan, with spatial divisions demarcated by thick canvas curtains. A rippling staircase leads to a lush roof deck. Vegetation is used throughout the property, from I-beam props to banister planters, as a visual counterbalance to the concrete.
