Jonathan Feldman, AIA, LEED AP, is Feldman Architecture’s founding partner and director of design. Since establishing the firm in 2003 in the basement of his San Francisco Victorian, he has watched Feldman Architecture grow into a residential and commercial design practice recognized for creating warm, light-filled spaces with an understated modern aesthetic. Jonathan is passionate about design that solves complex problems and committed to creating solutions that significantly improve the way we live and interact with our small planet. His work reflects an understanding of the clear connection between a building and its surrounding environment and has earned accolades from local, national, and international awards committees and recognition from numerous books and periodicals.
Jonathan earned a liberal arts degree from Amherst College, where he majored in Astronomy and English, then both explored a career in filmmaking and worked as a carpenter prior to pursuing architecture. He received his Masters of Architecture from the University of Oregon, where he took advantage of the program’s strong focus on sustainable design (as well as the Northwest’s spectacular mountains and back-country).
Now a registered architect in California, Massachusetts, and New Mexico, Jonathan enjoys sharing his knowledge of architecture and sustainable design on panels and serves on competition juries for local and national design awards. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, two daughters, and an ever-increasing number of rescued animals.
