Jeff has worked for Will Bruder Architects in two significant phases in the firm’s history. He took a decade hiatus in Chicago where he worked on several international projects of note and was directly involved with the restoration of two local seminal works by Mies van der Rohe – the iconic twin towers at 860-880 Lake Shore Drive and the Chicago Federal Center. Jeff has led efforts on El Dorado on1 St. Scottsdale, Horizon, 4UP and other multi-housing projects while supporting other studio projects with his valuable knowledge of code, zoning, energy and sustainability variables. With a scientific background including work in microbiology and virology, Jeff brings to architecture a phenotypic attention to detail. The rigors of his methods have also proven helpful in his garnering of several AIA and industry design awards. His architectural training has included studies at the University of Cape Town, the University of Newcastle under Pritzker laureate Glenn Murcutt and work with noted visionary architect Paolo Soleri. Having completed work in deserts Arabian to Sonoran, Jeff has an interest in promoting passive haus design, high performance buildings, and finely crafted details. Jeff has worked in collaboration with Carter + Burton Architecture, PLC for over 15 years. He has enjoyed the relationship with Jim Burton dating back to their early years in Middleburg, Virginia.
