northwest studio

Northwest Studio is a Seattle based architecture and urban design practice.  Since 2016, the studio has developed a distinctive approach that examines the fundamental conditions, and conventions, of every project in order to ask more relevant questions to create more resonant work.  The studio’s creative work ranges from buildings and interiors to urban environments across North America.

We are currently looking for talented people who love to practice, and to build.

Architectural Designer

Northwest Studio is seeking an Architectural Designer to assist the studio in developing and communicating rigorous conceptual and designed solutions, and to undertake technical detailing, on projects throughout North America.  Candidates will demonstrate strong design and technical skills, comfort being both precise and ambiguous, and enthusiasm about working collaboratively to actively shape our growing and diverse body of work.

We are a small and focused studio.  As an Architectural Designer, your role in the practice will include more than one active project, and your ability to cross-pollinate relevant design and technical strategies among a range of project types will be essential to successful work and the impact our practice has on the built environment.

Contribution to our growing body of work- and disciplinary focus, necessitates a desire to engage in a wide range of activities from strategic thinking to the execution of projects through Contract Administration.  In this role, you will collaborate with studio staff and work directly with the studio’s partners to design and document a wide variety of project types.

You should hold a professional degree in Architecture and have between three (3) to six (6) years of experience.  You should demonstrate an excellent ability to communicate graphically and through your writing.  And at a minimum, you should be proficient in Revit, Autocad, Rhino, and Adobe Suite.  We prefer that you are licensed, but this is not required if you are actively pursuing licensure.

This position operates best in-studio but may be remote with regular visits to the studio as needed.

Northwest Studio is committed to equity and diversity in the workplace.  If you are willing to offer your professional and personal experiences to help shape the studio’s work, and you see yourself as talented and highly motivated, please send a cover letter, a resume, and work samples in a single PDF to
