The paper describes the necessary transition from the consolidated practices of contemporary residential architecture to innovative sustainable design and construction practices, which can be pursued by applying the principles of digital fabrication to the construction industry. The contribution is divided into two parts: the first investigates the theoretical-critical assumptions of research and the second part describes a design experience that led to the creation of a housing prototype with an irregular geometry made up of CLT panels. The paper will explain the need to overcome the current phase of experimentation using digital fabrication technologies applied to small pavilions with complex shapes or high budget, to move to their application on residential building. The application of these technologies to residential architecture is desirable both for the diffusion and for the relevance of the change it would produce.
