About Dwell Design Studio
Ignore what you know about architecture firms – working at Dwell is completely different. Sure, the day-to-day tasks of moving projects from drawings to design are to be expected, but what doesn’t fit the mold is the posture of our leadership and culture. Our casual and disruptive nature goes against the grain of traditional firms – allowing you to be creative, have a voice in your career, and take a breather when you need it. Dwell Design Studio is seeking a radically polished Project Architect. The Project Architect plans and develops projects of medium to large scope and works under minimal supervision. May oversee a large staff of architects and technicians. Responsible for interpreting, organizing, executing, and coordinating assignments. Plans and develops architectural projects concerning unique and/or controversial complexities of subject area, definition of scope, selection of items for investigation, and development of novel concepts and methods. We have been awarded as one of the Best Places to Work for several years and are currently searching for skilled individuals who are interested in joining our energetic, entrepreneurial team.
