What our clients say...

Hamid’s willingness to listen to our wants and needs, his creative suggestions, and his easy-going personality made him a great fit for our project.  He knew when to listen and also when to “push back” with creative alternate ideas.  We are not only happy with the finished product, but also with the entire design process. Hamid helped make it fun, efficient and stress free. We ended up with our DREAM HOUSE! It fits us perfectly in every single way....

Who we are

In business since 1991, Habitat Architecture is an architectural practice in the Twin Cities, highly regarded for diversity in design and excellence in service and client satisfaction. Area of specialty has been single family custom residential design and remodel, multi-unit condos, townhomes, apartments and light commercial buildings.  

The firm is the dream child of architect Hamid M. Kashani – AIA, who started the firm with the idea of introducing the value of good design to the general public by making the services of an architect more attainable.
Since early childhood in his native country of Iran, his interest and talent in building design was apparent. Using his hands and imagination, whether creating models from mud and sticks on summer vacations in the country, or playing with wood blocks at home to carpentry and technical drafting at school his sense of balance and love for design was clear.
Hamid is a graduate of University of Minnesota, School of Architecture, and prior to starting the firm had practiced in a number of architectural firms in Denver, Orange County and Minneapolis with various discipline and building types.  He is a licensed architect and certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board; NCARB. He is also certified by US Green Building Council; USGBC as a LEED Green Associate, reflecting his longstanding commitment to sustainable design.

Modern home design   What we do  


We provide complete array of architectural services from start to finish. From conceptual design through construction and completion of your project, we will be there to protect your best interest and create the highest outcome.
Contrary to popular belief that architects only draw “blueprints”, preparing drawings for construction is only one element of the service an architect provides.  The process of designing and building a home consists of a number of steps or phases, each building upon the result of the work performed on the previous steps. Understanding this process and each of these steps is important in order to know what to expect and decide what level of services best meets your particular needs.
