Ronald McDonald House Charities
Ronald McDonald House of Springfield, MA
With children in the hospital, motels expensive and distant, families often find themselves sleeping in hospital waiting rooms. Since Ronald McDonald House of Springfield opened its doors over twenty years ago, families have been able to travel the short distance from area medical facilities to a comfortable homelike environment.

HAI Architecture Principal, Rick Katsanos, is President of Ronald McDonald House of Springfield and serves on the Advisory Board of Directors. In addition, he is on the Board of Directors of the Ronald McDonald Charities of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Our firm has also been privileged to contribute our architectural and interior design services over the years to renovate and improve the house. See also our renovation of the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the UMASS Memorial Medical Center, University Campus.

Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms
This 30-acre National Historic Landmark in Morris Plains, New Jersey, is the centerpiece of Gustav Stickley's early 20th century country estate, known as Craftsman Farms. The Stickley family's home, known as the Log House, was built in 1911 and is one of the most significant landmarks of the American Arts and Crafts movement. The only home he designed and built for his own use, it has been restored to its 1911 appearance and is operated by the Craftsman Farms Foundation as a historic house museum.

HAI Architecture Principal, Don Hafner, AIA NCARB, who lives in a home inspired by Stickley's designs, is on the Museum's Board of Trustees and is also a Benefactor for the Arts and Crafts Research Fund.
