As our business is growing and our projects deal with increasingly complex design, we are looking to hire an intermediate level architect, Intern Architect or Architectural Graduate, to join our team. We have a significant load of new homes and renovations on the boards and require an experienced home designer who is comfortable and competent working in both traditional and contemporary idioms.

Who we are looking for:
An individual with at least 3-5 years experience in single family home design. Familiarity with City of Vancouver RS zones and the permitting process is a must. Someone who likes to learn, is passionate about architecture and understands and believes that the nuts and bolts of how we build and detail our work is intimately tied to its design objectives. You are a team player, disciplined and responsible for your own activities but always willing to lend a hand and share what you know when and where the opportunity arises. You accept that stress is a part of any work environment and that humour and humility are important tools in making life just a bit better.
- Must have completed a professional degree in architecture.
- Must be registered with the AIBC, or eligible to be registered in the province of British Columbia.
