3D Printed Ceramic House, Amsterdam, Netherlands

荷蘭阿姆斯特丹 3D列印陶瓷屋

The latest project from the architectural design firm Studio RAP utilises its own bespoke, custom-built 3D printing technology to transform a boutique facade on Amsterdam’s P.C. Hooftstraat. According to Studio RAP, The Ceramic House reshapes architectural expression by seamlessly blending tradition and innovation, reintroducing bespoke details to the realm of architecture. The studio's innovative approach to contemporary architectural design uses state-of-theart digital fabrication processes conceived in its own manufacturing premises to print each bespoke 3D-printed ceramic tile. This enriches the famous shopping street's existing historic architecture with a new design language. The resulting design, achieved through algorithmic design, 3D-printed ceramics, and artisanal glazing, is exciting and textural, inspired by the craft of knitting garments.


建築設計公司 Studio RAP 最新項目利用其自己定制的 3D 列印技術來改造阿姆斯特丹 P.C. 的霍夫特街精品店外觀。根據 Studio RAP 的說法,陶瓷屋透過無縫融合傳統與創新來重塑建築表達,將客製化細節重新引入建築領域。工作室的當代建築設計創新方法採用在其自己的製造場所構思的最先進的數位製造工藝來列印每塊定制的 3D 列印瓷磚。這以新的設計語言豐富了著名購物街現有的歷史建築。最終的設計是透過演算法設計、3D 列印陶瓷和手工玻璃實現的,靈感來自於針織服裝工藝,令人興奮且富有質感。

Using digital design algorithms designed in-house, the Ceramic House explores a reinterpretation of the decorative qualities and design vocabulary of glazed ceramics in the historical city of Amsterdam. Studio RAP has replicated the silhouette of the original facade, continuing the characteristic tripartite structure of the street and maintaining the overall character of the site. The scale, size, type, and color of the ornaments and materials are all carefully synced with the neighbouring buildings to allow a seamless integration of traditional and contemporary architecture. The design of the façade features intricate layers inspired by textiles—elegant creases, interlooping yarns, and stitch patterns. Its organic, wave-like quality changes as viewers approach the design from different angles. Gradually, as the line of vision moves, new elements within the custom ceramic tiles are unveiled, resulting in a luxury boutique that harmonises with its historical environment while standing out among the surrounding buildings.



陶瓷屋使用內部設計的數位設計演算法,探索歷史名城阿姆斯特丹釉面陶瓷的裝飾品質和設計語彙的重新詮釋。 Studio RAP 複製了原有立面的輪廓,延續了街道特色的三方結構,保持了場地的整體特色。裝飾品和材料的規模、尺寸、類型和顏色都與鄰近的建築精心同步,以實現傳統和現代建築的無縫融合。立面的設計具有複雜的層次感,靈感來自紡織品——優雅的摺痕、互環紗線和縫線圖案。當觀眾從不同角度觀看設計時,其有機的、波浪般的品質會改變。隨著視線的移動,定製瓷磚中的新元素逐漸顯現出來,形成了一家與歷史環境相協調的豪華精品店,同時在周圍的建築中脫穎而出。

Drawing inspiration from the Rijksmuseum, the national museum of the Netherlands celebrated for its diverse ceramic collection from across the globe, Studio RAP employs their in-house large-scale 3D-printing technology to realise highly differentiated and algorithmically designed details. This innovative approach underscores Studio RAP's commitment to pushing the boundaries of architectural design Studio RAP has developed a distinctive digital fabrication process over several years, including the creation of advanced robotic systems. The team of architects collaborates seamlessly with these robots to precisely craft intricate ceramic designs, showcasing the studio's commitment to excellence in architectural design.



Studio RAP 受到荷蘭國家博物館(荷蘭國家博物館)的啟發,該博物館以其來自全球各地的多樣化陶瓷收藏而聞名,採用其內部大型 3D 列印技術來實現高度差異化和演算法設計的細節。這種創新方法強調了 Studio RAP 致力於突破建築設計界限的承諾 Studio RAP 多年來開發了獨特的數位製造流程,包括創建先進的機器人系統。建築師團隊與這些機器人無縫協作,精確地製作複雜的陶瓷設計,展現了工作室對卓越建築設計的承諾。

At street level, the facade features large 3D-printed ceramic tiles, approximately 40 x 20 cm each, glazed in pearl white with a subtle touch of yellow by Royal Tichelaar. These tiles are designed to be visually expressive at eye level, seamlessly transitioning to a flush alignment as they meet the ground, creating a harmonious and detailed aesthetic. On the higher floors, the building facade showcases 3D-printed bricks glazed in three distinct shades of red. The bricks are composed alongside the original masonry cross bond and have abstract ornamentation that fades as they travel higher. These bricks are put into laser-cut stainless steel cassettes, referring to the original flushes.



在街道層面,立面採用大型 3D 列印瓷磚,每塊尺寸約為 40 x 20 公分,釉面為 Royal Tichelaar 設計的珍珠白,帶有微妙的黃色。這些瓷磚的設計在視線高度上具有視覺表現力,當它們與地面接觸時無縫過渡到齊平對齊,創造出和諧而細緻的美感。在較高樓層,建築立面展示了 3D 列印磚塊,釉面呈現三種不同的紅色色調。這些磚塊是沿著原來的磚石交叉鍵組成的,並具有抽象的裝飾,隨著它們走得更高,這些裝飾會逐漸消失。這些磚塊被放入雷射切割的不銹鋼盒中,參考原來的沖洗方式。
