CENTRAL LONDON, UP TO £50k DEPENDING ON EXPERIENCE
We have an exciting opportunity for an architect with experience designing and delivering high-end residential projects in London to join a multi-disciplinary design and development company.
Their work consists of 50% selective commissions with discerning private clients and 50% their own developments ranging from townhouses in Chelsea and Mayfair to luxury apartments and 7 penthouses in prime London postcodes. This is a wonderful opportunity for a creative and diligent architect with commercial awareness to have the opportunity to work for a developer whilst maintaining design variety through private commissions.
The company, founded in 2012 by two partners, is a small and vibrant multi-disciplinary team of project managers, financial advisors, investors, development managers and a growing design team of 5 (architects and interior designers). They offer complete solutions for all their projects combining interior design with architecture to ensure each project has an authentic identity with timeless character and understated luxury. They operate a flat team structure as a small and close-knit team operating very collaboratively and transparently. They are relaxed and flexible in terms of working arrangements and take the well-being of their staff seriously - discouraging a long working hours culture.
The first project you will be involved in is a 4,000sqft home in St John’s Wood for a well-known family who are seeking to completely refurbish and remodel with an aspiration to extend the footprint of the existing building to 7,000sqft through a basement and top floor extension. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a new commission at the very earliest stages of design taking it through to planning and then tender and construction.
You will also be involved in various other projects including and amongst others, an in-house development of 7 luxury penthouses, a 5,000 sqft home in Mayfair and another of a similar size in Marylebone, a mews house in Chelsea as well as a development of 7 apartments which is currently at Tender stage and due to go on-site in September. Furthermore, the company hope to invest further in their own developments having recently secured considerable funding from a new private investor.
