EHDD is an award-winning firm that provides architecture, interiors, planning, and urban design services for educational, residential, institutional, commercial, and civic clients. EHDD offers a great work environment and interesting building types – including aquariums, museums, academic facilities, laboratories, libraries, student housing, and commercial residential developments, with notable projects including the AIA Headquarters Renewal, Goldendale Observatory, Smith Cove Cruise Ship Terminal and Events Center, Juanita Beach Bathhouse, and Thousand Springs State Park Visitor Center.

We are looking for Project Architects with exceptional design, project management, and communication skills to join our San Francisco or Seattle office. EHDD is not a departmentalized office; instead, we are organized around each specific project, and we keep key staff on that project from beginning to end. The Project Architect will have the opportunity to collaborate with the Seattle and San Francisco teams on projects across the Pacific Northwest and California.

As a Project Architect, your role is to provide design and technical leadership and documentation coordination for projects of all sizes and levels of complexity. You are self-driven, resourceful, and detail-oriented to ensure the highest level of quality and service for our clients. Strong organizational skills, flexibility, and critical thinking are necessary traits. A creative and proactive individual who is eager to take on new challenges will thrive in this position. We emphasize the importance of having a curious, speculative nature and a unique design perspective. The ideal candidate will be prepared and eager to participate in all phases of projects and have at least 1-year minimum experience in day-to-day direct management of a project in Construction Administration.

The primary responsibilities of this position include:

  • Participating in and overseeing all stages of the project including preliminary design, planning and approvals, construction documents, and construction administration.
  • Direct and coordinate production of schematic, design development and construction documents in collaboration with Project Manager.
  • Planning, developing, and executing technical documentation which may include interpreting, organizing, and coordinating project team assignments.
  • Perform construction administration duties (e.g.: RFI’s, submittals, bulletins, site observations, etc.).
  • Execute applicable agency review analysis (accessibility, zoning, life safety, etc.).
  • Direct, organize, and mentor junior staff.


  • Professional degree from an accredited school of architecture required. Architecture license required.
  • 5+ years experience in a design office [Architectural office preferred].
    Experience directing technical aspects of a project, producing construction documents, and overseeing construction administration.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Collaborative and professional work ethic.
  • Proficiency with Revit (required), AutoCAD and other 3D modeling software [Rhino/3DS Max/Grasshopper].
  • Advanced knowledge of the design process, construction documentation, and special experience/knowledge of construction administration.
  • Strong knowledge of sustainable design principles and LEED accreditation are a plus.
