Jeffrey Dreesman

AIA, NCARB, LEED Green Associate, Lean Green Belt
Associate Principal, Health, Los Angeles

Born and raised in the Midwest, Jeff can’t remember a time when he didn’t want to be an architect. His family claims it must have been a pre-natal experience since they joke that architecture was his first word. As a child, he was always more interested in the box than he was in the toy that came in it.

Today, Jeff is a respected leader in the planning and design of healthcare environments. Given the demands of healthcare, Jeff’s particular expertise is programming and designing spaces that focus on human experience and helping staff delivering care. As a medical planner by function, Jeff realizes the ultimate success of a project begins during conceptual design and continues throughout. It is in the middle of that process, when pieces fall into place and buildings take a life of their own, that he knows the goals of the project will be achieved.

Away from work, Jeff is an avid cook and loves to spend time in the California wine country and at his vacation home in Palm Springs with his family and two Shar-Peis.
