Skovsporet is a student village in Holstebro, Denmark consisting of 36 ground-level apartments. When completed each of the houses will be some of the largest 3D-printed houses in the world.
The walls feature coated plywood panels that seamlessly integrate with built-in shelving, presenting both form and function. Dominating the backdrop is an expansive glass window that beautifully frames the verdant garden view. Enhancing the brightness of the space, an elongated skylight punctuates the acoustic ceiling, inviting daylight to stream in. The space allows a sofa optimally positioned to offer outdoor viewing.

Utilization of space
The footprint of the corner homes is squeezed smaller, but they grow in height, making lofts possible.
Large roof surfaces are being added, pitched to accommodate the lofts. The high end provides a lookout for trees, the low end meets in common spaces.
The facade is pushed in to create small private outdoor spaces. Shifts break up long facades and create variety.
Beds of wild, natural plants are placed around the building for drainage during heavy downpours as well as screening and privacy.
