Multi-home Mainstream Housing Development Leverages ICON’s Proprietary 3D Printing Technology to Construct Safer, More Resilient Homes To Meet Current Demand in One of the Hottest Real Estate Markets in the U.S.
3D-printed Homes by ICON Continue to Hit the Austin Real Estate Market
This multi-home mainstream housing development in East Austin leverages 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.
“Fundamentally, our country’s housing crisis is a supply issue,” says Gary O’Dell, CEO of 3Strands. “3Strands is working to solve this by pushing the boundaries of new technologies that address root causes of this supply issue. By 3D-printing these homes, East 17th Street is a significant advancement for the future of construction. We have been overwhelmed by initial buyer demand and could not be more pleased with how ICON has delivered beautiful, energy-efficient and resilient 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.
Nestled in the fast-growing East Austin neighborhood, the development has four homes, two of which sold within days of their listing in March 2021.
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.
Austin-based designer Claire Zinnecker joined the project to design the interior finishes and fixture selection. Her approach for these spaces was a modernized West Texas design with a simplified palette featuring natural woods, metal finishes and earthy tile colors.
The remaining two homes in the development have hit the market by 3Strands and DEN Property Group. For more information on the residences, visit www.east 17th street residences.com.
