Project Brief:

Habersham is situated along the Broad River in Beaufort County, South Carolina.  It is a mixed use community comprised of approximately 650 acres, and serves as the urban hub for surrounding communities.

Eric Moser was a member of the planning team lead by Duany Plater-Zyberk  & Company in 1997.  The plan is carefully overlaid within the mature Live Oaks, marsh frontage and natural vegetation and rests very lightly on the site.

The architecture of Habersham offers a wide range of building typologies including commercial, civic and residential.  These buildings offer diverse range of sizes and urban character to capture a broad market range.

Eric Moser has served as the town architect since the project began.  Moser Design Group has designed approximately half of the 350 existing residences as well as the community building on a 30 acre park.  The dwelling units range from 1,000 square feet and up, and are grounded in the building traditions of the low country.  MDG continues their involvement in Habersham creating designs that rely heavily on the highly sustainable natural methods of heating, ventilation and cooling of the traditional vernacular buildings of the area.

Habersham has experienced exceptional market acceptance and continues to grow and thrive.
