More than simply a structure; Haas Habitats are a biological community between humans & their environment. A place to live, grow & forest bathe. Take a dip.
Trees are social, have feelings and communicate with their young, as per Wohlleben’s book, “ The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries From a Secret World.” Not simply a wood source to be cut for our consumption.
Our Preferred Partner – Go Native Trees
Shrubs, herbs, grass, moss and flowers are living organisms that absorb water by their roots and synthesize nutrients in their leaves by photosynthesis. Native, non invasive, carbon negative and drought tolerant plants for every habitat.
Our Preferred Partner – Prairie Nursery
Erosion measures help to minimize soil disturbance and run off. Topsoil is stockpiled and set aside for an organic garden. Non toxic pest control measures are implemented without synthetic fertilizers to preserve the surrounding ecosystem.
Our Preferred Partner – McEnroe Organic Farm
Human made features such as driveway and paths are made of permeable materials in order to allow water to penetrate the soil; thus reducing contaminant rain water run off, erosion and disturbance to the land.
Our Preferred Partner – Belgard

Bill was a true pioneer in the multidisciplinary design world. He was part of en elite group who achieved professional standing in the twin disciplines of both Engineering & Architecture. As a licensed Civil Engineer & Architect; Bill demonstrated innovation & aesthetic proficiency alongside structural practicality & profound durability in all of his designs. His 50 year professional history speaks for itself to include hundreds of: high rise apartment & condominium buildings, shopping centers, commercial complexes, non profit developments, churches, multiplex residential projects & single family residences. Derived from Bill’s highly complex, commercial portfolio alongside Jenny’s long standing commitment to sustainable design; came a big idea for a space structure; that we call a Haas Habitat.
