Haberman Residence


The Haberman Residence was built with the aim to deign a home aim a rural setting that provides a strong sense of connection between the contemporary interior spaces and the surrounding natural environment. The house is defined by clean lines and deliberate interaction between glazing, zinc, and cement board siding.

This project is certified by the US Green Building Counsel’s “LEED for Homes” program, a certification which recognizes that it was designed and built as a sustainable home. Superior insulation, air seal in the building envelope, and a highly energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, its energy consumption achieves an EnergyStar rating. A 10kW array of photovoltaic panels on the roof of the bedroom wing, also supply a large portion of the electricity used inside the house. The framing system is wood with engineered wood joists, achieving both structural stability and green certification.
