Soon after their formation, this practice was voted one of the Top 20 World Architects of the Future by Wallpaper Magazine and they haven’t looked back since, becoming one of the UK’s most notable emerging practices. They boast an impressive portfolio of projects from stunning Ski Chalets & Hotels across the world to exquisite private residences and design-led multi-unit buildings for living, working and leisure, both in the UK and internationally.
With an ever-expanding workload, they are ready to enter a new stage of growth and are seeking to hire an enthusiastic and skilled part II architectural assistant. This is an amazing opportunity to fast-track your development working closely with a small, intimate, and highly talented team across all RIBA stages from feasibility and planning to tender and construction, on a diverse range of notable projects.
Each project begins with thorough research and an understanding of both the clients’ aspirations and the inherent qualities of each building defined by their given context. Whilst they do not boast an in-house design style as such, their portfolio shouts sophistication, minimalist elegance & fine details.
You will initially be working on larger scheme residential projects for the likes of Jacob Homes and Galliard amongst others. You should therefore have an interest in larger scheme residential projects, connected with master planning, space planning and the larger social impact these developments have on their surroundings. They take design and the end user as sacrosanct and do deliver the projects they work on. They are now fully migrated to Revit so you will be able to learn or develop your skills in this highly sought-after software whilst at the same time, working on smaller projects in MicroStation.
