In high school, Kurt worked for architects. At 16, he designed his first house that was built in Los Gatos and recieved an award from the National Honor Society. He went on to attend Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in the School of Architecure. While attending, he was also a lead carpenter, building residential and commercial projects.
Kurt Useldinger received his Bachelor in Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in California in 1984. He became a licensed Architect in California in 1987- license #18189. He has been doing Architecture in the Bay Area for over thirty years.
In 1991, Kurt decided to create a hybrid experiment. He loved contemporry furnishings that , at the time, could only be found in San Francsico. So he opened "The Architect's Interior" right in the middle of downtown Los Gatos- a stronghold of antique furnishing. The focus was creating great interiors with furnishing, lighting and art. They stayed open at night, played music. Pretty fun. That went for 15 years.
In 2006, Kurt also became a licensed California Realtor.
Kurt currently practices Architecture in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and up into the Pennisula in both Residential and Commercial architecture.
