Leveraging extensive experience in design, construction, and business, the Iconic Design + Build team works to create beautiful, functional spaces, while keeping each client's project budget and goals in mind.

Kaitlyn Wolfe was introduced to design and architecture at a young age after her family moved to Elham, England, a small village outside of London. The experience of living abroad left her inspired by the character and history of European architecture, leading her to incorporate elements of classic style into her contemporary designs.
After receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Biology and Neuroscience, Kaitlyn earned an MBA with the intention of one day owning a business. Prior to launching Iconic Design + Build, Kaitlyn gained experience as a project manager and interior designer at a Phoenix-based residential construction company.
During her time in construction, Kaitlyn recognized a lack of design expertise within the industry. Iconic Design + Build was created to fill that void - to perfectly blend stunning aesthetics with feasibility and functionality.
As a licensed general contractor, Kaitlyn provides full-service design services while keeping both the functionality and structural integrity of your space in mind. If you are looking for a true partner in your design project, incredible attention to detail, and the utmost professionalism, Kaitlyn and Iconic Design + Build's talented partners are the team for you.
