Structure

Unparalleled, copyrighted design by: William Haas (former P. Eng., O.A.A.); licensed Civil Engineer and Architect, and Jenny Haas; principle Interior Designer. Bill was a true pioneer in the multidisciplinary design world for over fifty years and part of an elite group who achieved professional standing in the twin disciplines of both engineering and architecture. Derived from Bill’s highly complex, commercial portfolio; alongside Jenny’s passion and long standing commitment to sustainable design; came a big idea for a small space.

Strategically smart, small, simple and sustainable.

Environmental footprint less than 2000 sf. It’s uncomplicated form includes: insulated slab construction, mono pitched roof with extended overhangs, single span joists, multi-functional spaces, passive solar principles, and seamless indoor / outdoor transitions.
