Multi-home Mainstream Housing Development Leverages ICON’s Proprietary 3D Printing Technology to Construct Safer, More Resilient Homes

This multi-home mainstream housing development in East Austin leveraged ICON’s proprietary 3D printing technology to construct safer, more resilient homes to meet the current demand in one of the hottest real estate markets in the U.S. This collection of four unique homes, ranging in size from 900 sq. ft. to 2,000 sq. ft., offer 2 and 4 bedroom configurations that are stronger and longer-lasting than traditional built homes.

Designed by Logan Architecture, the first floor of these highly energy efficient homes were 3D printed using ICON’s Vulcan construction system and its advanced material that is stronger and longer-lasting than traditional building materials. 3D printing technology provides safer, more resilient homes that are designed to withstand fire, flood, wind and other natural disasters better than conventionally built homes.

All four homes feature large covered front porches, covered parking, open concept floor plans, bespoke interior design, vaulted master bedrooms, large North-facing windows, secluded office/bedrooms, and minimalist architectural aesthetic
