A founding member of KPB Architects, Jeff Koonce has played a key role in Alaska’s urban and rural architecture scene over the past 33 years. He has successfully led a wide range of projects, from schools to medical offices, and buildings both commercial and civic. Jeff has earned a reputation for exceeding client expectations and being a strong leader and mentor to his staff. He’s made an impact in the community as well, as he serves on the State Board of Registration for Architects, Engineers, and Land Surveyors (AELS), and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB).
Raised in Salem, Oregon, Jeff attended the University of Oregon in Eugene where he received his Bachelor’s in Architecture before moving to Alaska where he met and married his lovely wife. Never one to stay still for long, Jeff can be found on the golf course in the summer months or hunting in the fall, and spending time with his wife and two kids year-round.
Community involvement is in the genes at KPB and Jeff is no exception. He is proud to be involved with the University of Alaska Architectural Engineering Technology Program, and the Municipal Code Committee, and is actively involved at St. John’s United Methodist Church. Jeff’s strong leadership in the community and at KPB ensures Alaska’s future is a bright one.
