Over the past 20 years, Eric
Moser, President of Moser Design Group, Inc. (MDG), and his
staff of professionals have built a reputation as designers of
fine custom residential architecture.
Their primary focus over the past decade and a half
has established the firm as a major proponent of the New
Urban movement. As a
member of the Congress for New Urbanism, the New Urban Guild,
and the Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical
America, MDG dedicates their work to the planning and
architectural fulfillment of New Urban and Traditional
Neighborhood Developments (TND’s).
MDG’s involvement with New
Urbanism began in Beaufort, SC in 1992 with the pioneering
neighborhood of Newpoint.
Since then, they have been involved with many TND’s including
Eric’s home town of Habersham in Beaufort, SC.
In 1997 Eric participated with the highly acclaimed firm,
DPZ Architects in the planning charrette for Habersham.
Today it is a growing, vibrant coastal village where Eric
chairs the Architectural Review Board and works closely with
town founder Bob Turner in fulfilling the town plan.
Eric is a frequent consultant on charrettes
across the United States for new and old towns, infill projects,
hamlets, and neighborhoods. He collaborates with other
professionals to plan, analyze and reintroduce the historic
local and regional building patterns that made most old towns so
successful and memorable. MDG has established itself as one of
the most prominent providers of Traditional Neighborhood
building types, ranging from 600 square foot bungalows, to manor
houses to town center civic buildings.
Over time, this broad array of experience has allowed the
team at MDG to refine the craft of place making.
The firm has also been active in the Katrina and
Rita recovery efforts in the Gulf Coast.
Eric was a participant of the Mississippi Renewal forum
and remains very active in developing and providing emergency
housing solutions for the victims of the storms.
A significant portion of that work has been the design of
multiple Katrina Cottages and building relationships with
manufactured and modular home companies to affect the quick
delivery of dignified, permanent alternatives to FEMA trailers.
A MDG Katrina Cottage design was
chosen as one of the first four plans to be engineered into a
material package in partnership with Lowe’s Home Improvement
MDG endeavors to provide
high quality authentic designs and stay involved with the
growing number of New Urban projects.
The firm is also dedicated to finding new approaches to
make their buildings and projects more sustainable.
