BIO

With a passionate belief that great design rooted to its environment can enhance lives and make a difference to those that use and engage with it, our process involves examining each project’s context in order to come up with design solutions that feel appropriate to the situation at hand. Using cutting edge 3d computer design to create inspired and resolved architecture. Founded in 2008, Habitat Designs llc has established a reputation for delivering quality innovative design solutions.

San Juan Island

After living overseas in Asia for years we feel grateful everyday to call San Juan Island our home. Blessed to be able to live and practice architecture in such a stunning natural setting. Every project seems to be in its own special Island environment. We have designed homes on many of the islands Mountaintops, Valleys and Shoreline. Our specialty is  designing a home that really fits and responds to this spectacular natural environment. I have thoroughly enjoyed raising my two daughters on this island with my wife Vail a practicing Real Estate Broker.

Design Build Partnership

Our design process is influenced by years of experience as a team member for "Ravenhill Construction" the award winning preeminent construction firm in the San Juan Islands .  Jonathan spent 10 years responsible for  designing budgeting and managing the in house design projects.

           From the beginning, our collaboration with Jonathan Hu ( Habitat Designs llc) on design was a fun an illuminating adventure. We wanted to create a structure that would coexist naturally with the oak groves, meadows, and rocky terrain of the land. Jonathan was able to juggle all the variables and my strong opinions in mind, while gently correcting course to the realities of home construction.
