Founded in 2006, Habilis DesignBuild is a full-service design build firm dedicated to creating unique, sustainable dwellings tailored to our clients’ needs as well as the needs of the planet. We focus on project-specific, solutions-based methods that involve melding cutting edge technology with traditional craftsmanship. We take a very creative and practical approach to each project and have the experience and knowledge to truly be unique.
In addition to architectural design, we have full in-house project management and contracting capabilities. Our ability to take a project from concept to handing over the keys is one of our greatest assets to a client. With 16 years of on the ground experience in Colorado we feel confident that we can achieve the balance of practicality, style, and innovation that make our houses unique sanctuaries.
Our name “Habilis” is Latin for “able man” or “handy man” and was used to describe the first human ancestor who developed and used tools, Homo Habilis. Homo Habilis was also the first to begin building shelters. Our name is thus an homage to a distinct turning point in the human lineage when we began to fashion the world we lived in by creating “homes”.
We look forward to working on your unique creation.
