OUR PEOPLE

Gregg R. Golden

AIA NCARB | Senior Living

“From prior experiences, creating ‘Living Architecture’ in Housing, Residential, Hospitality, and Senior Living Facilities just made sense. The built environment that we live in and entertain in is my passion”

When Gregg was a young child, he would visit and spend lots of time with his grandparents at the care center they resided.  In retrospect, Gregg didn’t fully grasp his grandparent’s situation, but he knew, they felt loved, protected, and cherished  He realized that these residential facilities were homes to every single person, and they deserved an environment that was more than a place to stay. Whether it is a House, Apartment, Hotel, or Senior Living Facility these are all places people live.  In most cases a place to call home. This motivated Gregg to earn an architecture degree in pursuit of improving housing, entertainment & senior living environments.

Gregg is now a Senior Partner at PRA and leads the Residential, Hospitality & Senior Living Studios. He wears every hat when he takes on a project including business development, programming, creating performas, project management, budgeting, scheduling, and designing. He enjoys the responsibility of working on behalf of an under-represented demographic and has a passion for making a living environment a true home. On every project, he steps into the shoes of the residents and asks himself “What would I want, like, and need? What would they expect, think, and feel?” From these questions, he brainstorms early ideas that will guide him throughout the key elements of a project.

Gregg is passionate about making a lasting impact on his community and world in which he lives. He is always looking for ways to give back, so he took the initiative to get certified as a Disaster Service Worker and will be assigned essential emergency duties during times of Disaster and State of Emergency. When he isn’t giving back, he is spending time outdoors with his wife, five kids, and two wiener dogs whenever he can.
