We would like to hire an Architectural Intern with an open and curious intellect to join our team! We are a small, design-forward firm in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. Our design approach is more driven by strong planning principles, integration of natural light and landscape and meticulous detailing than by stylistic dogma . Current projects in the office are a mix of single family residential (substantial remodels and additions), public libraries, and commercial spaces. We have completed buildings throughout Northern California, as well as in Wyoming and New York State. Our work has been published in Architectural Digest, California Homes, Sunset Magazine, and the local newspapers.
The successful candidate is a well educated, self-motivated and thoughtful architect-in-training who is comfortable in a small-firm environment. You are well organized, have good work habits and computer skills, and have completed at least a Bachelor’s degree with a major in Architecture. B.Arch or M.Arch are preferred. We know you are a beginner and expect to mentor you, but we require that you have experience with AutoCAD or Revit, as well as basic Adobe programs—Photoshop and Acrobat. Vectorworks or other 3-D drafting programs are a plus. An excellent command of the English language is essential to the job. We will not sponsor a candidate for a work visa.
The Job: In our small office an Intern Architect has a variety of responsibilities and opportunities which will evolve according to your relative strengths . You will work closely with the Principal to provide design and presentation support in the early stages of a project and will organize and coordinate the construction documents under direction of the Project Manager.
