Jeff Seabold launched Seabold Architectural Studio in early 2009 with the intent to provide superior architectural services in the Jackson metro area, the state of Mississippi, and the Southeast region. His experience includes over 200 projects ranging from new residential construction and remodeling to historic preservation and light commercial design. He serves as the President Elect of the Jackson Historic Preservation Commission and recently received the City of Jackson’s Historic Preservation award for Commercial Restoration in 2016. Jeff is a founding board member and the two time past Chair of the Mississippi Chapter of the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and served as the state’s LEED for Homes Advocate for 5 years. During that time, he saw the largest concentration of LEED silver or higher homes in the world be constructed in one neighborhood. He served as the Chair Elect for the Southeast Regional Council of the USGBC and on the national USGBC Chapter Steering Committee in charge of strategic visioning and other working groups. He was the first architect in Mississippi to be designated a LEED AP Homes, and currently has 5 registered LEED for Homes projects seeking Gold or Platinum certification. He has also been involved with the American Solar Energy Society and Metro-Jackson Rebuilding Together. A graduate of both Millsaps College and Mississippi State University’s School of Architecture, Jeff earned the prestigious New York AIA Douglas Haskell Award for his theoretical writing. In 2012 he was voted the Best Architect in Jackson by the Jackson Free Press, the only year it was offered, and in that same year received the designation by the Mississippi Business Journal of being a Top 40 under 40. Jeff believes in dedicating at least 10% of his firm’s time to the community, research, and to causes that support the mission of his firm. He has made the Fondren neighborhood in Jackson his home with his son, Windsor. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys running ultra-marathons, mountain biking, working on small construction projects around his home, cooking, and playing with his son.
