Jeff Gold grew up in Palo Alto where he expressed an early interest in architecture. His initial architectural studies took place at the University of California, Berkeley. His undergraduate major in art took place at Antioch College in Ohio. During this time he received a Sloan Kettering Foundation grant to develop an environmental studies program at the College. Following his undergraduate studies, Jeff completed a three-year master’s program in architecture at Yale University.

Upon completion of his graduate studies and apprenticeship in San Francisco, Jeff settled in Nevada County, where he opened an architectural practice in 1977. He has been active as an architect and general contractor since that time. His work has been recognized by grants from the US Department of Energy and the State Department of Housing and Community Development. His new commercial buildings have received architectural awards from the city of Nevada City. His custom residences have been featured in national publications, including Sunset and Fine Homebuilding.

Jeff has been engaged in his community as a member on the Grass Valley Design Review Board, the Nevada County Land Trust, the Cement Hill Neighborhood Association, and as a founding member of the North Columbia Cultural Center.

In 1993 Jeff constructed a new home near Nevada City for his wife, Anna, and their two children. Adjoining this home is his office-studio where he continues to conduct his practice in an intimate setting.
