ORA Architects

ORA Architects focuses on the design of arts and cultural venues for non-profit and public organizations, with emphasis on adaptive transformation of aging facilities. We offer a flexible collaborative work environment with the opportunity for active involvement on exciting community-focused projects. We share an open studio with other small design firms on Capitol Hill, in a light-filled loft space with treetop views, above the Elysian Brewery, a short walk to the light rail station. We work extensively with non-profit organizations serving BIPOC and other underserved groups, and we are keen to diversify our own team.

We are seeking well-rounded architects to play active roles on an exciting range of projects, including Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Children’s Theatre, University Heights Center, Northwest Film Forum, Youngstown Cultural Center, and Columbia City Theater.

Optimal Qualifications:

  • 4-15 years architectural experience in all phases of design and construction
  • Excellent design, presentation, and communication skills
  • Open-minded collaborative approach
  • Facility with Revit, Auto-CAD, Sketch-up, and Adobe Creative Suite
  • Licensed architect
  • Sustainable design / LEED experience preferred
  • Interest and experience in performing and media arts a plus but not required
