We build homes; not just houses – ICON Homz.


What are the things that go into building an ICON home? Is it just a mere house with four walls and a ceiling? A house can be a home only when warmth, care and thoughtfulness are added to it. At ICON Homz, we strive to do just this – to ingest meaning and life into our buildings; to erect happy and comfortable homes for our customers.

Firstly, we pay attention to every tiny detail. A lot of thought goes into the design of the house itself to ensure that space is effectively optimized, eliminating unnecessary and unusable spaces. At the same time, we strive to bring in plenty of natural sunlight and fresh air into each home to add warmth and cheer and try to do away with dark and dingy corners.

Secondly, we always use superior quality construction material. All fittings and work is done by experienced workmen to maintain high quality standards. Knowing that lead can be toxic, we use lead free paints – this will safeguard the health of not only the customer but also our extended family of builders, painters and masons.
