The designs take advantage of natural light and space, and incorporate LED lighting, smart-home features and indigenous, responsible landscaping.

“We build what we believe are the most elegant, refined and healthy homes imaginable for today’s families,” said Peter Donovan, HHB Co-Founder and General Manager.
