Founder and President Eric Moser hails from a rural Indiana farm family. He spent his early education years learning from generations of farmer-scientists, philosophers, and innovators who instilled a deep respect for the Agrarian way of life. Inspired, traditional vernacular quickly became Eric’s passion and discovered architecture to be his calling. After studying architecture at The University of Florida, Eric established Moser Design Group in 1986, catering to a custom residential design clientele in a resort setting. Although rewarding, Eric soon came to the belief that a complete re-thinking of community development and the metrics with which buildings themselves are measured and valued was paramount to creating meaningful and sustainable places.
Eric has designed many notable homes in new urbanist neighborhoods, including several Idea Homes for Southern Living, Coastal Living, and Cottage Living. He has served as Town Urbanist at Habersham since the project’s beginning and serves at other new urbanist neighborhoods as well. Eric is a frequent consultant across the United States, the Caribbean, and beyond, where he is involved with the planning and design for new and old towns, infill projects, hamlets, and neighborhoods. Eric has been a senior member of the New Urban Guild for over a decade and has collaborated with the most notable New Urbanists in many design charrettes over the years. He is also a co-owner and board member of Studio Sky.
