Dreiling Terrones Architecture is a multi-disciplined Architecture, Planning and Construction Management firm. We provide comprehensive design and construction services, offering a non-traditional range of strategic actions for public and private clients. We are intentionally small, we make both visible and invisible architecture, and we do not accept the traditional boundaries of the field.
We build public schools, houses, apartments and occasionally we shape policy and plans for neighborhoods and cities. We serve our clients as stewards and help them make the best decisions possible.
We are looking for candidates to join us in our Burlingame Office - centrally located on the San Francisco Peninsula, in the following positions:
If you want to work here you need to be genuinely interested in making buildings. You should care about cities, about the environment and about your neighborhood. You should also be able to make drawings of buildings, and understand HOW buildings are built.
You should be curious about all aspects of constructing the human habitat, from the technical craft of building to the social crafts of regulation, finance and politics.
You should be interested in the opinions of others but you should also understand the role of leadership in architecture.
You should be able to draw things with your hands, write a good paragraph, defend a good idea and respect the ideas of others. You should be pretty good at running a computer but you should know where the off button on your phone is.
And you should also be able to build real things, solid things, yourself, with your hands and some good tools.
You should see architecture as an important effort in the making and keeping of civilization.
You should have a degree in architecture with a studio-based education. If you're just out of school we'll make you an Architect sooner than most firms, but you will have to work hard and enjoy pressure. If you have processed permits, worked with the State of California, administered construction or enjoyed face time with clients, we'll have a lot to talk about.
If you are interested in having a conversation about such things and are willing to work hard to learn and perfect the craft of architecture in its broadest sense, please send us the information listed below:
